Two more men have been jailed for dealing class A drugs in Aylesbury.

Tony Openshaw, 24, of Bicester Road, Aylesbury has been jailed for 16 months and Shahid Hussain, 25, from Eeles Close, Aylesbury, has been jailed for 27 months.

The pair both appeared at Oxford Crown Court on Monday where they pleaded guilty to the charges.

Det Insp Russ Murden, from Aylesbury, said: “These sentences are another success story for Operation Sideline and reinforce the message that drug dealers will not be tolerated in Aylesbury.”

These arrests are as a result of a series of drug raids carried out in September across Aylesbury and London.

This was the biggest drugs operation in Aylesbury to date, with dozens of people from a variety of ages being arrested for drug-related offences. This is now being continued with Operation Abacus.
