Main article content
Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man has now been jailed for drug offences and for dangerous driving in High Wycombe.
Mohammed Surfraz, aged 41, of Shrimpton Road, High Wycombe was sentenced to three years and four months’ imprisonment.
He pleaded guilty to three counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs, one count of dangerous driving and one count off failing to provide a sample of blood for analysis at Aylesbury Crown Court on Wednesday (27/11).
It relates to the following incidents, the first on 4 July 2019, at around 8.20pm Surfraz was seen driving a vehicle on Brecon Way. He failed to stop when indicated by officers and drove backwards, at speed, up a narrow street. Surfraz then ran from the vehicle and was later arrested for dangerous driving. Upon his arrest, he was found in possession of drugs.
On 27 July this year, he was found in possession of drugs, cash and phones in Hithercroft Road.
Finally, on the 2 August this year, Surfraz was arrested in Green Street after being found in possession of controlled substances.
Investigating officer PC Rachel Miller based at High Wycombe police station, said: “The conviction of Mohammed Surfraz has had a significant impact on an established drugs line in High Wycombe.
“Surfraz showed little regard for the public driving dangerously and regularly dealing drugs to vulnerable people.
“Drugs are a key driver behind serious crimes such as burglary and robbery. They cause misery for the users and their family and Surfraz was part of a network aiming to take advantage of these people.
“Targeted, intelligence led policing and positive use of stop and search has led to a dangerous man being sentenced to a considerable prison sentence.
“This has caused significant disruption to the network he is involved with.
“Thames Valley Police, through the Stronghold Campaign are committed to protecting the vulnerable and targeting those who wish to exploit them for financial gain”
