Man jailed for six years for drugs offences

Thursday, February 1, 2024

A MAN has been jailed for six years after our Roads Policing Unit stopped a car on the M6 and found almost three quarters of a million pounds worth of heroin.


Officers pulled over Mohsin Syed (pictured) near Garstang in November and discovered the drugs in the passenger footwell of the car.


In total there were nine packages weighing 1kg each which was found to be heroin with a street value of £598,000.


Syed (02/05/99) was dealt with by our Op Adder team in custody and charged.


Earlier this month Syed, of Limbrey Drive, Milton Keynes admitted Being Concerned in the Supply of Heroin and Possession with Intent to Supply Heroin and was jailed for six years.


The stop of the vehicle was made as part of ongoing Op Warrior, which was set up to target individuals and gangs involved in crime, as well as associated issues such as violence and intimidation, large scale drug supply, exploitation and fraud, all of which can cause serious harm to local communities.


Project Adder is a multi-agency initiative in Blackpool targeting those who sell Class A Drugs.


By removing drugs and providing those suffering with addiction the pathways to rehabilitation Project Adder is having a huge impact on the town and tackling the scourge of Class A drugs distribution.
