Following an investigation by Thames Valley Police, a man has been sentenced for drugs offences in Slough.
Abulrahman Abdulrahman, aged 23, of Munster Avenue, Hounslow has been sentenced to a total of 43 weeks’ imprisonment, after being found guilty at a hearing at Reading Crown Court on Friday 4 November.
He was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £190 and also forfeited a quantity of cash which was found on him at arrest.
He was found guilty of one count each of, being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine, being concerned in the supply of heroin, possession with intent to supply crack cocaine and possession with intent to supply heroin.
On 31 May 2020, officers from Slough Neighbourhood Problem Solving Team spotted Abdulrahman behaving suspiciously.
He was arrested on an unrelated matter and taken to custody.
A further custody search found him to be concealing suspected Class A drugs and a mobile phone.
The drugs and phone were later destroyed by Thames Valley Police.
Abdulrahman was charged on 16 July 2022 and remanded to face trial.
Inspector Peter Lawman, of the Neighbourhood Problem Solving Team, said: “Abdulrahman tried to bring a drug line into Slough, but failed thanks to the proactive efforts of Problem Solving Team officers.
“I am satisfied that he has been convicted and sentenced for his offending and this should serve as a message that if you are trying to deal drugs in Slough, our officers will be proactively looking for you in order to arrest you and bring you before the courts to face justice.
“Members of the public are extremely important in the fight to reduce the harmful impact of stopping the misery that drug dealers bring. Therefore, I would ask the public to keep telling us about suspected drug dealing and individuals they suspect might be carrying weapons.
“The more intelligence we get, the more effective we can be with our response.”
