A drug dealer who supplied heroin and cocaine has been jailed for three years and four months.

Reece Hussain, 21, of Wexham Road, Slough was sentenced at Reading Crown Court after pleading guilty to two counts of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs and one count of acquiring criminal property.

This follows reports from members of the public that at around 4.15pm on January 31, a man was acting suspiciously in Spinners Walk, Windsor. Police attended and stopped Hussain finding class A drugs and cash on him.

Hussain was arrested and charged on the same day.

Investigating officer, PC Tom Hughes-Parry, based at Maidenhead police station, said: “This arrest was made following members of the public reporting a suspicious man in their town.

“A stop search of the man showed him to be involved in county line drug dealing in the area.

“I hope the length of sentence shows a clear message that drug dealing will not be tolerated in the Royal Borough and how important the public’s calls to us are.

“Thames Valley Police is running the True cost campaigns which highlights the misery and terrible impacts drugs and drug supply have on communities and vulnerable people.
