Main article content
Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man has been convicted of drug offences in Chalfont St Peter, Buckinghamshire.
Tommy Taylor, aged 21, of Layters End, Chalfont St Peter, pleaded guilty to two counts of possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of class B, namely cannabis, at High Wycombe Magistrates’ Court on Friday (10/6).
He is due to be sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court on a date to be confirmed.
At around 10.55am on 3 April 2019, officers executed a Misuse of Drugs Act warrant at Taylor’s address.
A quantity of drugs was located, along with scales and other items used for drug dealing, and officers arrested Taylor.
Then, at around 6.30pm on 18 November 2020, a vehicle with Taylor inside tried to evade police on Layters End.
When the vehicle eventually stopped, there was a strong smell of cannabis so officers searched it.
Officers found a quantity of cash and mobile phones in the vehicle, as well as a quantity of cannabis in Taylor’s possession, so officers arrested him again.
Taylor was charged on 5 May this year.
Investigating officer police investigator Debbie Parker-Boyes said: “Thames Valley Police will not tolerate drug-dealing on its patch.
“We will continue to target offenders and protect our communities from the harm they cause.
“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.
