Drug trafficker given five years after £10,000 of cocaine found in routine police check

A CONVICTED drug trafficker caught ferrying almost £10,000 of cocaine across Bradford has been jailed for five years and three months.
Mohammed Ayaz Khan, 37, was “sweating and nervous” during a routine police vehicle check and found to have a 120 gram block of the Class A drug on the passenger seat, along with cutting agent, scales, dealer bags and phones.
He pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine with intent to supply on May 13 last year and to driving with no licence or insurance.
Prosecutor Ben Thomas said police pulled Khan’s Volvo over on his home street, Hill Side Road, Barkerend, Bradford, at 8.20pm.
Because of his nervous manner, his car was searched and the drug, bicarbonate of soda, and paraphernalia was seized.
The cocaine block, of 59 per cent purity, could have been split into 244 single street deals, of 29 per cent purity, worth £9,760, Mr Thomas stated.
Khan had 19 previous convictions for 27 offences, the court heard.
In August, 2008, he was imprisoned for three years for supplying heroin and crack cocaine.
A confiscation order was made to seize £487 held in Khan’s bank account.
