Men jailed for cannabis supply in Aylesbury

Two men have been jailed for dealing cannabis in Aylesbury.

On Thursday (13/6) at a hearing at Aylesbury Crown Court, Haseeb Zaman, aged 22, of Fairfax Crescent, Aylesbury, was sentenced to a total of four years’ and four months’ in jail.

He pleaded guilty at a hearing in September 2023 to being concerned in suppling a controlled drug of class B, possession of criminal property, and fraudulent evasion of a prohibition.

Muhammad Qasim Khan, aged 28, of Fairfax Crescent, Aylesbury, was sentenced to three years’ imprisonment on Thursday after he was found guilty of being concerned in suppling a controlled drug of class B following a four-day trial.

On Tuesday 18 July 2023, officers from the Buckinghamshire Proactive Team arrested Zaman and Khan after an investigation identified them as being involved in cannabis supply across Aylesbury.

Khan was found in possession of £400 in cash and a mobile phone. The phone showed that Khan had been supplying cannabis.

Zaman also had £400 in cash on him and eight bags of cannabis. He also had two mobile phones on him, one of which was a drugs line phone, which provided evidence that Zaman had been orchestrating the drugs line supplying cannabis across the town.

A search of Zaman’s home found more cannabis, high value clothing and around £10,000 in cash.

Zaman’s drugs phone, which was interrogated further, found that he had been importing cannabis from California, one package intercepted by officers contained 64 bags of cannabis.

Zaman and Khan were charged on 19 July and remanded in custody.

Investigating officer PC James Gordon said: “It is clear that Haseeb Zaman was the key player importing and moving drugs for sale in Aylesbury and was benefiting from this enterprise.

“Muhammad Qasim Khan was also involved in the sale of cannabis for profit.

“The dealing of drugs in Aylesbury and across the Thames Valley will not be tolerated. We know that it brings only misery to our communities and often results in violence, and the exploitation of young and vulnerable people.

“We will continue to investigate and bring offenders such as Zaman and Khan to justice.”
