Man jailed for supplying Class A drugs in Keighley

A 22-year-old man from Keighley was sentenced to 32 months in jail for supplying class A drugs.

A man from Keighley has been jailed for 32 months after an investigation into the supply of Class A drugs in the town.

Officers from Bradford District Programme Precision Team undertook an operation to target offenders supplying drugs in Keighley. 

Usman Ali was given a 32-month jail sentence. 

As a result, Usman Ali, 22, of Springfield Road, Keighley was arrested and charged with two offences of supplying Class A drugs.

He appeared at Bradford Crown Court on 13 January to plead guilty to the offences.

Ali was sentenced yesterday, Thursday 27 January to 32 months in prison.

Inspector John Barker of Keighley Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “Illegal drugs will not be tolerated in our communities and this operation and investigation demonstrates that we will target those who are involved in drug dealing and organised crimes.

“Keighley Neighbourhood Policing Team will continue to target drugs supply to protect our communities with Programme Precision, which is all about working with our key partners to tackle organised and serious crime.

“I would like to thank the communities of Keighley who have shared information and intelligence with us which allows investigations such as this to take place. I would encourage anyone with information about drugs supply to contact West Yorkshire Police or Crimestoppers to support this continued disruption of those involved in the supply of drugs.

“We hope that this sentence will serve as a warning to others that if you are involved in the supply of drugs, we will act on the information we receive to identify you, arrest you and bring you before the courts.”
