At 1pm on December 15 last year, Nasir was driving along the A41 in Aston Clinton in an Audi A6, towards Aylesbury. After officers attempted to stop his vehicle, Nasir made off at speed.

Officers were able to stop him and then he was arrested shortly afterwards. Following his arrest, it was discovered that he was in possession of £1,650 worth of Class A drugs, multiple phones and also cash. He was charged the next day.

Investigating officer PC Gary Ratcliffe, of Aylesbury police station, said: “Nasir drove at speed along the A41, in such a manner causing danger to not only himself, but innocent members of the public.

“However, swift work from our officers meant that he was arrested shortly after making off, preventing any further dangerous driving and causing any risk to the public on what is a busy road.

“After being stopped, Nasir was found to be in possession of Class A drugs, mobile phones and cash in his car. He was charged the next day.

“Now he has been sentenced after pleading guilty due to the strong evidence against him, he can reflect on his offending while serving this sentence.

“Anyone involved in County Drug lines or organised crime within Aylesbury Vale will be targeted by the Stronghold Team and will continue to be pursed until the line or crime group are no more.”
