Liam Hobson, of Marchant Court, pleaded guilty at Aylesbury Crown Court on Thursday, August 18, to resisting or obstructing a constable, driving without due care and attention, being in possession of Class A drugs with intent to supply, driving whilst disqualified, using a vehicle with no insurance, and breach of a suspended sentence.
Hobson was spotted driving in Ragmans Lane, Marlow Bottom, by an off-duty officer at about 12.49pm in February 2016.
He alerted the police who sent officers to arrest Hobson, who tried to avoid arrest by driving dangerously and ramming a police car.
When police arrested him, he was found to be in possession of wraps of Class A drugs, paraphernalia, £175 in cash and a weapon fashioned out of a metal bar.
The drugs and paraphernalia were destroyed and the money was donated to a local charity.
He was charged on the same day.
His sentence is made of three months for intent to supply, 35 months for possession of an offensive weapon in a public place, three months for resisting or obstructing a constable, and an extra nine months for his previously suspended sentence he had been given for drug offences.
Hobson was also banned from driving for a year after he is released, and he will require an extended retest if he wishes to drive again.
The investigating officer, PC David Cannon, of Local Area CID said: “Hobson has shown that he has not reformed and I am pleased that we have been able to remove him from the streets.
“He evaded arrest, and showed a clear lack of respect for the law or for the impact his crimes have on communities.
“His arrest, conviction and sentencing shows that drug dealing and carrying weapons will not be tolerated in Marlow.”
“It is also pleasing that the money seized from Hobson’s criminality will go to help the local community.”
