A SERIAL drug dealer has been jailed following a large scale operation. 

Operation Sansa investigated 'county lines' drug dealing, and has led to the imprisonment of a 21-year-old. 

Kieran Byran-Bartlett, of no fixed abode, was charged with one count of conspiracy to supply cocaine and one count of conspiracy to supply heroin, he pleaded guilty at Reading Crown Court and was sentenced to four years.

The operation found that there was a large conspiracy to supply heroin and cocaine in Bracknell between May 2015 and July 2016.

More than 20 warrants were executed in July 2016 in Bracknell, Wokingham, Ascot, Reading, Croydon, London and Hove, with 50 arrests and 28 sentences. 

Bryan-Bartlett was wanted for a number of months, and was arrested at Notting Hill Carnival by officers on August 28, 2017. 

Senior investigating officer, Detective Inspector Rachael Wheatman of Thames Valley Police's Serious and Organised Crime Unit, said: "This is another great result as part of Operation Sansa.

"Byran-Bartlett thought he could evade police officers but his conviction shows that if you plan on carrying out serious crimes such as conspiring to supply drugs you will be caught and put before the courts.

"We are committed to eradicating the blight of high level drug dealers moving narcotics across "county lines" and into the Thames Valley and this is one of the focuses of our campaign Stronghold which aims to work in partnership to tackle serious and organised crime.

"We would ask anyone in the community to keep reporting those who deal drugs as this enables us to build up information and then bring offenders such as Byran-Bartlett to justice."
