A Banbury drug dealer has been kept in custory after admitting attempting to sell wraps of Cannabis near a Banbury school.

Ahmed was bailed but police officers on an operation clamping down on drug dealing around Banbury schools, found him near a school in an alleyway off Mold Crescent on April 28 and saw something being passed between Ahmed and another man. This time Ahmed had Cannabis worth around £160 on him.

Defending Andrew Newton said Ahmed had ‘gone off the rails’ partly because of the absence of his parents but was now motivated to ‘improve his life’ and was seeking employment.

Judge Patrick Eccles sentenced Ahmed saying: “You were bailed and within three weeks you were found doing exactly the same thing unteterred by being put into the criminal justice sustem.”

Ahmeda has spent four months in custody since his arrest and was orderd to spend a ‘few more days’ behind bars to prepae for his release.
