Additionally, on Tuesday, May 19, 2020, at around 12.40pm, officers attempted to stop Anderson in his car, but he drove away at speed and crashed into a parked vehicle in the initial pursuit across the town.

Officers chased him relentlessly during which time a quantity of class A drugs were thrown from the vehicle where eventually, Anderson was stopped and arrested, after the car he was driving developed a mechanical fault near Fairford Leys. 

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Andy Hipwell based at Aylesbury police station, said: “Anderson is now a convicted drug dealer.

“He was attempting to sell his drugs on the streets of Aylesbury after travelling from Birmingham on the day of his arrest.

“County line drug dealing is real, and it remains a priority of Thames Valley Police to do all we can to bring those involved to justice.

“The ongoing Stronghold campaign works in partnership to tackle serious organised crime and exploitation.

“This type of offending exploits children and vulnerable people and often violence and intimidation are used against the most vulnerable in our communities.

“We will not tolerate those who attempt to exploit our communities and aim to bring drugs into them.

“I’d like to thank the team who responded and carried out this pursuit.

“Anderson showed a complete disregard for others on the roads and around him in his desperation to avoid the police and the justice he has now had to face.

“Let this be a warning to anyone who thinks they can come to our town and sell drugs.

“We will find you, we will arrest you, and you will face a prison sentence, just like Anderson.”
