Amir Khan, 25, from Penn Road, Aylesbury, has been sentenced to two years in jail after pleading guilty to numerous drug offences, according to Thames Valley Police.
Khan pleaded guilty to one count of being concerned in the supply of a class A drug, one count of being concerned in the supply of a class B drug and one count of possession of a class A drug with intent to supply at Aylesbury Crown Court last Monday.
He had been spotted by police “acting suspiciously” on Penn Road on the afternoon of 5th February last year.
The police consequently carried out a search, finding a large number of drugs in his possession, and a subsequent search of his home found further quantities of drugs and more than £16,000 in cash.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Andy Hipwell, based at Aylesbury police station, said: “Khan had no qualms carrying out his drug dealing in a busy residential street until he was spotted by officers from our Stronghold team.
“Drugs cause significant harm within our communities and we will take the strongest action when a crime of this nature comes to our attention. The Stronghold campaign seeks to protect children and vulnerable people who are often exploited by this type of offending.
“We hope the sentence passed this week shows we will not tolerate those who bring drugs into the Thames Valley area and will deter those who are intent on carrying out a similar offence.”
