Pidsley was also found guilty of one count of the possession with the intent to supply cannabis, and one count of possession of cocaine. 

The sentencing came after an investigation from Thames Valley Police which established that these men were the main players in a drugs line supplying cannabis in Witney, Carterton and Eynsham - as well as other areas in West Oxfordshire. 

Arrests and search warrants were carried out by officers between July and August last year. 

At the time a large amount of cannabis was found at the house of Pidsley. 

Officers also found cannabis with an estimated street value of £13,000 pounds at a lock up in Witney. 

Designated investigator Rebecca Newman, based at Witney, said: “Drug dealing will not be tolerated within West Oxfordshire or the Thames Valley.

“Our officers will continue to gather intelligence and information in order to bring those who seek to make a profit from selling illegal drugs to justice by investigating them thoroughly and putting them before the courts.

“Drug dealing has a detrimental and damaging effect on our communities and we will continue to make arrests and carry out warrants to remove offenders and the drugs they sell from our streets.”
