Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man has been sentenced for drug offences in Oxford.
Kyron Ahmed, aged 21, of Minchery Road, Oxford, pleaded guilty to one count of being concerned in the supply of a controlled class A drug and possession of a class B drug – namely cannabis on 16 December last year.
He was sentenced to two years and six months in prison at Oxford Crown Court today (13/1).
On 16 November 2022, a warrant was executed in Minchery Road.
During the warrant officers seized a quantity of cannabis and a mobile phone, as well as a quantity of cash.
Ahmed was arrested at the scene, and was charged the following day.
Investigating officer PC Chris Kidd, of the Stronghold team based at Oxford police station, said: “This investigation was into a drugs line operating in the Oxford area supplying Class A Drugs to others for financial gain.
“Drugs lines are commonly known to exploit vulnerable people and many crimes that occur are as a result of Class A Drugs.
“This investigation was conducted by the Stronghold Team in Oxford who are committed to tackling organised crime in partnership which includes a pro-active approach towards county drug lines and organised crime groups.
“If you have any information we would encourage you to report it to us by calling 101 or through the online reporting on our website.”
