A drug dealer has been jailed for nearly three years after he was caught dealing in Bucks.

Jakub Zielinski, 35, of Albany Place in Aylesbury, has been locked up for two years and eight months.

On Monday, Aylesbury Crown Court heard how officers arrested Zielinski after they spotted him Albany Place in the middle of a drug deal on October 7.

Zielinski’s custody shot, which was shared on social media by police following his sentencing, drew several comments on his cheerful expression.

One commenter said: “He looks chuffed to bits.” While another added: “That should wipe the smile off his face!”
