A man who had drugs and scales inside his house when police raided it has been convicted. 

Tommy Taylor, of Layters End in Chalfont St Peter, had a quantity of drugs, scales and other items used for dealing in his home address when police raided it on April 3, 2019 - and he was swiftly arrested. 

But then on November 18, 2020, a vehicle that the 21-year-old was in tried to get away from police on Layters End. 

When the car eventually stopped, police searched it because there was a strong smell of cannabis - and they found cash, mobile phones and cannabis in Taylor's possession, so he was arrested again. 

He was charged with two counts of possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of class B, namely cannabis, and pleaded guilty to the crimes on Friday, June 10, at Wycombe Magistrates' Court. 

He is set to be sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court at a later date. 

Investigating officer police investigator Debbie Parker-Boyes said: “Thames Valley Police will not tolerate drug-dealing on its patch.

“We will continue to target offenders and protect our communities from the harm they cause.

“We continue to need the support of the public in this, and we would ask them to report any information that they have about drug dealing.

“This can be shared with Thames Valley Police on our website or by calling 101.

“You can also report information anonymously by contacting independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111 or via its website.”
