A MAN has been jailed after police found him with stashes of crack cocaine and heroin. 

Wasim Hussain, 21, from Middlesborough, pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to supply cocaine and one count of possession with intent to supply heroin. 

He was arrested in Greenham, Newbury, on Thursday June 22 following a stop and search. 

When he was arrested, he was found to have 22 wraps of heroin and 72 wraps of crack cocaine on his person. 

Further investigation by police found that he was linked to 'county lines' drug dealing. 

He was charged by postal notification and attended Reading Crown Court to plead guilty on Wednesday January 10. 

He was sentenced the same day to two years in prison. 

Investigating officer, PC James Botto, based at Newbury police station, said: “This case is another example of county line drug dealing and the conviction shows how Thames Valley Police and the Crown Prosecution service are committed to investigating such offences and bringing offenders to justice.

“No matter what the level of involvement is regarding drug supply the authorities will seek to prosecute. In this case Hussain was transporting drugs into Newbury from the London area for others to sell. Without this courier service there would be no supply and the conviction reflects the seriousness of his actions”.
