A Kirklees man has been jailed for nine years after police found two kilos of cocaine in properties and a vehicle connected to him.

A Kirklees man has been jailed for nine years after police found two kilos of cocaine in properties and a vehicle connected to him.

Nadeem Rashid, 31, of Clarkson Avenue, Heckmondwike, was found in possession of the Class A drug after police stopped a vehicle he was travelling in on 20 August last year.

Subsequent searches of houses linked to Rashid more cocaine.

Appearing before Bradford Crown Court for sentencing yesterday, Thursday 10 February, Mr Rashid, who admitted conspiracy to supply Class A drugs and possession with intent to supply Class A and was jailed for nine years and eight years to run concurrently.

Mr Rashid’s original defence statement where he claimed duress was negated through a comprehensive and thorough police investigation.

Detective Inspector Mark Atkinson of West Yorkshire Police’s Programme Precision Serious Organised Crime Unit said: “We welcome this sentence, which reflects the seriousness of Rashid’s offending and the harm done to our communities by the drugs he was planning on trading.”

“West Yorkshire Police will act upon any community intelligence we receive about the activities of organised crime groups and we would urge people to report these activities to us.”
