Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man has been jailed for dealing class A drugs in Aylesbury.
Younes Bardallou was sentenced to two years and 11 months in prison at Amersham Crown Court yesterday (18/11).
The 25-year-old, of Buckingham Road, Aylesbury, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply class A drugs at the same court on 14 October 2021.
At around 4pm on 13 October 2021, officers witnessed Bardallou conduct a suspected drug deal outside his home.
He was arrested and a search was carried out at the address where officers located cocaine with a street value of around £900 and his iPhone.
Analysis of his phone showed he was running a drugs line within Aylesbury, which he maintained control of when he was out of the country during the summer.
Whatsapp messages on Bardallou’s phone included, “it’s so hard finding runners when you’re out of the country,” and, “call my line, see if they answer.”
PC Ben McNeill, based at Aylesbury police station, said: “Anyone involved in organised crime within Aylesbury Vale will be targeted by the Stronghold team and will continue to be pursued until they are brought to justice.
