A man has been sentenced to a total of six years and six months’ imprisonment for drugs offences which occurred in Oxford.
Jay Isthiaq Ahmad, aged 23, of Rest Harrow, Oxford, was convicted and sentenced at Oxford Crown Court yesterday (27/2).
He pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to supply cocaine and one count of possession with intent to supply cannabis.
On 7 March 2017, officers attended Ahmad’s address in Rest Harrow on an unrelated matter.
When they were there, officers saw Ahmad put car keys into a flower pot at the rear of the property.
During a subsequent search of the property, officers obtained the keys and used them to carry out a further search in two vehicles near the address which the keys fitted.
Officers discovered cocaine and cannabis with a street value of more than £30,000.
Ahmad was charged with the offences on 2 January.
Investigating officer, PC Stephanie Barras-Thompson of the Oxford Investigation Hub, said: “Ahmad’s conviction and sentencing shows how seriously Thames Valley Police takes drugs offences, and means that a drug dealer has been removed from the streets of Oxford.
“I hope that this serves as a warning to other offenders and demonstrates the serious consequences of this type of crime.”
