A Chesham man has been jailed for 15 months after he was convicted of drug supply offences.

Devon Jensen-Wallace, aged 24, of Hivings Park, Chesham, pleaded guilty to two counts each of being concerned in the supply of a class A drug, namely crack cocaine and heroin, in a hearing at Reading Crown Court on Tuesday (August 3).

Jensen-Wallace was subsequently sentenced to 15 months’ imprisonment for each offence to run concurrently.

This comes after police officers executed warrants on Janaury 21 at addresses in Chesham and Acton, London, in relation to a County Drug Line which had been identified as travelling from Acton to Chesham to supply class A drugs.

Jensen-Wallace was located at the address in Chesham and found to be in possession of a phone used to facilitate drug deals as well as a quantity of cash, believed to be from the proceeds of crime.

The address in Acton found relevant paraphernalia used to package drugs.

Jensen-Wallace was arrested and charged with the offences on the same day.

Investigating officer PC Harley Richardson of the Stronghold team based at Amersham, said: “As a result of excellent partnership working with the Metropolitan Police, we have successfully disrupted this County Line and brought a drug dealer to justice.

“Jensen-Wallace will now serve a custodial sentence as a result of his actions.

“Our Stronghold team are committed to disrupting and dismantling County Lines and organised criminals who seek to bring harm to our communities, often targeting the most vulnerable in our society.

“We will continue to strive to make the Thames Valley a hostile place for drug dealers, and will always look to put offenders before the courts where they belong.

“I would urge anybody who has any information about drug dealing or County Lines in their area to report this to us.

“You can do this confidentially by calling 101 or by contacting the independent charity Crimestoppers 100% anonymously on 0800 555 111.

“Working with our communities, we will continue to remove the scourge of drugs supply and safeguard the most vulnerable people in our society from harm.”
