Basit Hussain, of Sherwood Place, Undercliffe, tried to hide evidence of robbery

A DRUG dealer who tried to hide incriminating evidence after a violent robbery at a Bradford supermarket has been jailed for six years.
Basit Hussain, 21, sped off from the police in the black Jaguar used in the £14,500 raid on the Tesco Express Store in Manningham Lane.
A G4S security guard was Tasered in the raid at 10.30am on April 18, Bradford Crown Courtheard.
Hussain, of Sherwood Place, Undercliffe, Bradford, was charged with the robbery but did not match the description of the culprit, who was “six feet tall and white”, prosecutor Heather Gilmore said.
Hussain pleaded guilty to dangerous driving in the Jaguar, and driving while disqualified.
Yesterday, the Crown accepted his denial of the robbery and his guilty plea to perverting the course of public justice by attempting to hide evidence.
Hussain was also sentenced for supplying heroin, crack cocaine and cocaine, after pleading guilty to those offences at Leeds Crown Court.
Ms Gilmore said Hussain was on bail for the drug dealing offences when he was pursued by the police in the Jaguar less than three hours after the robbery. He was first spotted on Harrogate Road and when he hared off, jumping red lights and driving on the wrong side of the road, a stinger device was deployed on Killinghall Road.
