The two men were charged by postal requisition on June 9, 2022.

Investigating Officer PC Ben McNeill, based at Aylesbury police station, said: “During the investigation, it was found that Jordan Castello and Rodney Peters were working in partnership from 5 July 2020 to 15 October 2021 to supply cocaine across Buckinghamshire.

“These sentences send a strong message to people involved in the supply of drugs that drug dealing will not be tolerated in Aylesbury and we will be robust in our response.

“We will continue to pursue this criminal activity and look to protect vulnerable people members of the community. We will not tolerate those who attempt to exploit our communities and bring drugs into them; it is only a matter of time before we arrest you, stop your supply and seize your drugs and cash, and take you to court.

“The information from the public around drug supply offences plays an important role in helping to stop illegal drug supply, which will not be tolerated.

“If you have any information which can help us in this effort, we would encourage you to report it to us by calling 101 or through the online reporting on our website.

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