“Through our Stronghold campaign Thames Valley Police will continue to work in partnership to tackle serious organised crime and to stop those who seek to exploit vulnerable people for their own means.

“Combatting drugs supply is always a top priority for Thames Valley Police, and we will actively seek to disrupt organised drug supply to protect our communities.

“I am pleased that Dean no longer has the opportunity to supply drugs in the community, which can cause immeasurable damage.”
