London Man Jailed for Drug Offences in Newbury

Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man has been jailed for drug offences.

Faisal Ismail, aged 20, of Brenthurst Road, Brent, London, pleaded guilty at Reading Crown Court on 23 July.

He was convicted of one count of possession with intent to supply heroin and one count of possession with intent to supply crack cocaine.

Ismail was arrested on 29 May 2019 at a property in Northway, Newbury and charged on 30 May.

On Monday (29/7) he was sentenced to two and half years’ imprisonment.

Investigating officer PC James Botto of the West Berkshire Tasking Team, said: “Offences like this affect the most vulnerable members of our community, and Thames Valley Police will not tolerate drug dealing in our communities.

“Targeting those who deal drugs is a top priority for Thames Valley Police, particularly those who seek to deal drugs across county lines.
