“We will continue to disrupt large scale drug supply within High Wycombe and I hope that this serves as a reminder to those who seek to involve themselves in such criminal activity that it is only a matter of time before the Stronghold team in Wycombe catch up with you.

“I would also like to thank the public for the information they supply to us. That information is vital for us to gather intelligence and take action against criminal activity.

“You can report online through 101 or if a crime is in progress please call 999. Or if you do not wish to talk to the police you can speak to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. The information you provide could help us tackle criminals but you will not be identified and you will not have to attend court.”
