Chisti also breached a suspended sentence imposed in January for a drug supply offence committed in Hertfordshire in August last year.

On August 10 this year, officers were conducting proactive patrols to detect county lines drug dealing in the Cowley Road area.

At around 4.30pm, officers saw Chisti, who appeared to be dealing drugs, in an alleyway off Union Street.

Officers detained Chisti and found 27 wraps containing a mixture of white and brown substances suspected to be class A drugs in his possession.

He was also in possession of a quantity of cannabis, a quantity of cash and a Samsung smartphone.

Officers arrested him and searched his property on Milton Road, where they found a packet containing two blocks of cannabis resin.

A drug field test on the wraps indicated the dark substance was heroin and the white substance was cocaine.

Chisti was charged on August 11.

PC Chris Kidd, of the Oxford Stronghold Team, said: “This case relates to an investigation into a county drugs line based in London that has a footprint in the Oxford area – using local people to sell drugs for them.”
