Twenty jailed in Keighley drugs operation

TWENTY men have been jailed for nearly 70 years following an operation targeting the supply of Class A drugs in Keighley.

Officers from the local neighbourhood team worked with specialist resources at West Yorkshire Police to carry out a series of arrests of those suspected of supplying drugs to people in the town in Operation Saucerlake.

On one day of Saucerlake activity, more than £10,000 of drugs were recovered in more than 800 street deals. Mobile phones, cash and drugs paraphernalia were also taken away for further analysis.


Imran Hussain, 27 and Akaf Hussain, aged 31, both of Malsis Road, Keighley were the last two charged under the operation to be sentenced.

Both men appeared at Bradford Crown Court yesterday and were jailed for four years and two months and three years and four months respectively.

Prosecutor Abigail Langford told Bradford Crown Court that the pair had been charged via their involvement in the ‘Marco’ selling line.

Imran Hussain gave wraps of heroin to undercover police on September 8 and 19 last year, with Akaf Hussain caught after completing a deal involving the same drug on September 13.
