A pair of drug dealers from High Wycombe and Loudwater have been jailed for a combined total of nearly six years.

Alfie Dewing, 24, of Queensmead, Loudwater and Chow San Dylan Lo, 26, of Rennie Close, High Wycombe, have been locked up for two years and eight months and three years respectively.

On January 10, the two men made a plan to travel from High Wycombe to Aylesbury to sell crack cocaine and heroin.

When the duo stopped off at Tesco in Tring Road to fill up on fuel, they were ambushed by police officers who arrested them.

A search of their car uncovered a mobile phone and a large amount of cash. A drugs recovery toilet process led to Dewing passing £1,660-worth of class A drugs.

The two men were charged with possession with intent to supply class A drugs on January 11, with both entering guilty pleas.

At a sentencing hearing at Aylesbury Crown Court on Monday, Dewing was sentenced to two years and eight months while Lo was given three years.

Investigating officer PC Levi Fensom, of the Stronghold team based at Aylesbury police station, said: “I am very pleased this investigation has resulted in the convictions of Dewing and Lo.

“I hope this shows the people of Aylesbury that we take issues of drug supply very seriously, and anyone involved will be targeted by the Stronghold team to bring offenders to justice.

“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 calling independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
