Banbury drug dealer jailed for three years

The 23 year old was searched and officers found a bundle of crack cocaine and heroin.

Lewis Ayre, from Fisher Close in Banbury, pleaded guilty to possession of class A drugs with the intent to supply and was sentenced to three years in prison at Oxford Crown Court on Friday.

At around 12:50pm on 26 October this year, Ayre was a passenger in a vehicle on Cherwell Street in Banbury.

Due to suspicious activity, the occupants were detained for a search by police officers.

During the search, a bundle of crack cocaine and heroin was located.

Ayre was arrested and charged the same day for his involvement in the supply of Class A drugs. He was charged on 27 October.

Investigating Officer, PC Chris Eaton said: “Tackling drugs supply remains a top priority for Thames Valley Police. We will actively seek to disrupt organised drug supply to protect our communities.
