Drug dealers and people who supply drugs ruin lives on a daily basis in Bucks.

These criminals exploit vulnerable people and addicts, often forcing others to take the risks while they rake in the profits.

Thanks to the hard work of Thames Valley Police officers, a few more dealers and would-be dealers have been taken off the streets in Buckinghamshire.

Below are five offenders who were put behind bars in the last few weeks. You may want to steer well clear if you ever see them out on the streets in the future.

Ansar and Ajmal Akram

Brothers Ansar and Ajmal Akram ran a drugs empire that operated in Bucks as well as all around the country, supplying substances to organised crime groups.

The pair, who are from Hemel Hempstead, were sentenced to a combined 29 years in prison at St Albans Crown Court earlier this month.

Ringleader Ansar Akram, aged 34, got 15 years behind bars after he pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply cocaine and possession of criminal property.

Meanwhile, younger brother Ajmal Akram, aged 30, was locked up for 14 years after he was found guilty by a jury of the same charges.

After police conducted surveillance on them for six months in 2019, the pair were arrested. During their investigation, officers seized 6.5kg of cocaine, with an estimated street value of £200,000.

Police also recovered more than £150,000 in cash, but it is estimated that this accounts for just a small fraction of their illegal activites.

Moray Peacock-Howie and Jake White

These two young men were found with around £5,000-worth of drugs which they were attempting to supply.

Peacock-Howie, 21, of Victoria Street and Jake White, 18, of Cradley Walk, were both locked up after they admitted to possession with intent to supply heroin.

The pair were both sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court on July 20. Peacock-Howie was jailed for three years and four months, whilst White was sentenced to two years and six months in a young offenders’ institution.

In April, police were on patrol in the Aylesbury Vale area when they spotted White, who they found in possession of large amounts of cash.

Officers went to White’s home in Cradley Walk, where they found Peacock-Howie, along with significant amounts of class-A drugs. The 21-year-old was trying to push them down the sink when police arrived.

Mohammed Dilbar Shabab

Would-be dealer Shabab was jailed for more than six years after he was caught running away from a property in Chesham which police had discovered drugs in.

The 26-year-old, of Cowper Road in Chesham, pleaded not guilty to being concerned in the supply of class A drugs, but a jury found him to be guilty at Aylesbury Crown Court on August 12.

He had also admitted to a further count of being concerned in the supply of class B drugs. 

Between August 2018 and November 2019, Shabab was involved in supplying drugs in Chesham, and after police got into his phones, they found messages offering to supply illegal drugs.

Following his trial, he was locked up for six years and six months.
