'We'll hit drug dealers very hard', pledges Keighley's new police chief


KEIGHLEY'S new police inspector has been told teenagers as young as 15 are being used to deal drugs in the town.
The claim was made at a special public police forum where it was also said dealers were using containers from Kinder Egg sweets to transport and conceal drugs.
Speaking after the meeting, Inspector Khalid Khan praised what he described as a "caring" community and pledged to take action to address people's fears.
"When we come after these dealers we will be going for them very, very hard," he said.


"Drugs are very much at the forefront of those local concerns we're investigating. Since I've been here, in the last three months we've executed six drugs warrants at various properties where we've made arrests and recovered cash and drugs.
"The community is fed up with this problem and it is coming forward to tell us about it. We're listening carefully to what the public are saying and we are acting on what they tell us."
Insp Khan stressed that despite well publicised police raids on cannabis farms in the town, that specific issue was no more prevalent than in other towns.
He said his officers were visiting schools to discourage children from emulating what they see as the "flashy" drug dealer lifestyle.
"We're making sure we're getting across the message that these influential role models are bad role models," he added.
"I also want to ensure parents take ownership of their children.
