Banbury man jailed for drugs offences

A Banbury man will spend one year and three months in prison after being convicted of drugs offences.

An investigation led by Thames Valley Police discovered that 20-year-old Umar Faroq, of Fergusson Road, had been dealing class B drugs in Middleton Road in the town at around 5.45pm on 4 April 2017.

He was found guilty of committing drugs offences by a unanimous jury at Oxford Crown Court on Tuesday (8 January) after a two day trial.

Investigating officer Detective Sergeant Tim Hawley, based at Banbury police station, said: “The organised supply of drugs is a priority for Thames Valley Police.

“The most vulnerable members of our communities are affected by these crimes and officers work tirelessly to make sure those who seek to profit from drugs supply will be put before the courts.

“I would urge anyone with information regarding drug dealing to contact 101, or alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
