A drug dealer who was caught with hundreds of pounds worth of heroin and crack cocaine has been jailed.

Benjamin Hellon, 28, of Ladbroke Close in Aylesbury, has been locked up for three years and nine months.

On February 8, police caught Hellon carrying drugs after they stopped and searched him in Dunsham Lane.

A search of the offender's home uncovered £640-worth of heroin and £380-worth of crack cocaine, as well as large amounts of cash.

Hellon was jailed for three years after he pleaded guilty to charges of possession with intent to supply crack cocaine and heroin at Aylesbury Crown Court on Monday.

He was given a further nine months on his sentence for breaching a suspended sentence order.

Investigating officer PC Levi Fensom, of the Stronghold Team, based at Aylesbury police station, said: “The Aylesbury Stronghold team will relentlessly pursue and prosecute drug dealers, who cause untold harm in our communities.

 “We will continue to target those who seek to exploit vulnerable individuals and I hope this conviction will serve as a warning to others who seek to profit from criminality.”
