A High Wycombe man who tried to flee the country after police uncovered £98,000-worth of class A drugs has been convicted.

Mohammed Asif, 21, was caught by police as he was trying to board a plane out of the country just days after police raided a house in Maidenhead and found cannabis, cocaine and heroin.

Inside the Woodlands Park house on June 14, police seized over 3kg of herbal cannabis, over 260g of heroin, over 320g of cocaine and 29 further individual ‘deals’ of crack cocaine.

The street value of these drugs is believed to be about £98,600.

Police also discovered a "vulnerable" man had been "cuckooed" by an organised crime group who were using his house as a base to sell drugs from.

It was days later that Asif, whose home address is in Sheraton Drive in High Wycombe, was arrested at the airport.

He was charged with three counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs, which included cocaine, heroin and crack cocaine, and one count possession with intent to supply cannabis.

After appearing at Reading Crown Court on Monday, August 23, he pleaded guilty and was remanded in custody until he is sentenced on October 1.

PC Gavin Ward of the Neighbourhood Problem Solving Team based at Maidenhead police station, said: “This result shows our Problem Solving Team take drug supply and the exploitation of vulnerable persons seriously, and a significant quantity of controlled drugs have been removed from our streets.

“This will have disrupted the Organised Crime Group involved, and shows we will not tolerate those who seek to cause harm in our communities.”
