Two men have been jailed following an incident in the Market Square, Aylesbury in which a police officer was deliberately run over.

On Friday 5th October 2018, at Aylesbury Crown Court, 21 year old Corey Allard, of no fixed abode, was jailed for a total of 21 years, while 25 year old Omar Trent Burke, of The Pastures, High Wycombe was jailed for a total of 30 months.

The sentences are in relation to an incident that occurred just after 3.00pm on Tuesday 13th February 2018. Officers from Thames Valley Police were called to the Market Square, Aylesbury following reports that a vehicle had collided with an on duty police officer.

The driver of the vehicle, Corey Allard, failed to stop the vehicle he was driving following the collision with the police officer.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Andrew Melton of Force CID based at Aylesbury Police Station, said: ‘Corey Allard deliberately drove the vehicle at a police officer, who was attempting to stop the car as it was believed to be used in the supply of drugs in the Aylesbury area.

After the collision, Allard, failed to stop at the scene.

Allard and his friend, Omar Trent Burke, then wiped down the vehicle, a red Vauxhall Astra, in order to remove their finger prints.

Burke then helped Allard escape Aylesbury by organising a taxi to Reading.

This case demonstrates the dangers that police officers and staff can face on a delay basis.

The officer was taken to hospital with head injuries, but thankfully they were not as serious as first thought and he was later discharged from hospital.

The officer was incredibly fortunate to have walked away from this incident with minor injuries thanks to his quick reactions and sheer luck.

The officer is now back on duty, keeping the public of Thames Valley safe.

I am pleased that Allard and Burke will now serve a substantial period behind bars for their offences.

The judge remarked that Allard is a dangerous offender, who showed no regard for life when he drove a vehicle at the police office in broad daylight on 13 February this year. As such, Allard will not be considered for early release from prison until he has served at least 14 years’ imprisonment.

Omar Trent Burke pleaded guilty to :

  • One count of assisting an offender.
  • One count of being concerned in the supply of a class B drug.
  • One count of possession of a class B drug.

Corey Allard was found guilty of :

  • One count of grievous bodily harm.
  • One count of dangerous driving in relation to the incident in February this year.

Corey Allard was also found guilty of :

  • One count of grievous bodily harm and attempted robbery, in connection with separate incidents in High Wycombe.
  • One count of being concerned in the supply of class B drug.

Co-defendant, 23 year old George Michael Green, of no fixed abode, was also found guilty of :

  • One count of grievous bodily harm and attempted robbery, in connection with the incidents in High Wycombe.
  • One count of assault in connection with another incident in High Wycombe.

George Michael Green was sentenced to a total of five years and eight months imprisonment.

All defendants were in the car at the time of the incident in Aylesbury. Corey Allard was driving while Omar Trent Burke and George Michael Green were passengers.
