A man has been sentenced to six years in prison for a string of drug offences.

Dylan Lo, aged 20, of Hazell Road, Prestwood, was convicted after a three day trial at Amersham Crown Court on Monday (August 1).

A jury found him guilty of five counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs – three counts for heroin, one for cocaine and one for crack cocaine.

Lo also pleaded guilty at the same hearing to one count of possession of class A drug – cocaine and was sentenced at the hearing.

The offences took place between June 27 2014 and 11 June 2015.

Police found cocaine at Lo’s previous address in Hughenden Road, High Wycombe on June 27 2014 and arrested him.

On February 14 2015, staff at Premier Inn in High Wycombe smelled cannabis coming from the room Lo had booked and called the police, who found drugs paraphernalia, cocaine and heroin in the process of being cut up and some drugs in wraps.

Lo was arrested.

On May 5 in Grafton Street, High Wycombe, Lo was seen by officers with an orange bag which was found to have drugs inside it.

On June 11, Lo was seen by officers to take possession of a golf-ball sized wrap of heroin in an alleyway near Cotswold Way in High Wycombe.

Lo saw police and ran away, dropping the drugs on the floor. He was arrested and after an area search the drugs were located.

Investigating officer, Det Con Sarah Simpson from High Wycombe local CID, said: “The supply of illegal drugs can have a devastating impact on the community as it often links to other criminality.

“Lo was found on four different occasions to be in possession of drugs and it is clear he was dealing them, potentially destroying the lives of many other people.

“The sentence demonstrates that the police and courts take a firm stance on drugs and the supply of them and we will continue to do so.”
