Drug dealers caught in covert police sting

Four drug dealers caught in an undercover police sting in Keighley have been imprisoned.

Code-named Operation Saucer Lake, the crackdown, involved trapping dealers using an undercover police officer who bought wraps of drugs openly sold in the town centre and parks near to schools.

 

24 year old Akash Hussain of Surrey Street, Stockbridge in Keighley, is a repeat drug trafficker who was sentenced to seven years, as a third strike Class A drug dealer, minus a 20 per cent discount for pleading guilty.

 

The Recorder of Bradford, Judge Roger Thomas QC, said Hussain was seen with a double handful of Class A drugs as he did his delivery rounds.

Kaddar Hussain, 30, of Owl Street, Keighley, and Husnain Sardar, 22, of Carder Close, Nelson, in  Lancashire, were each jailed for 32 months.

Mohammed Saddique, 25, of Belgrave Road, Keighley, was jailed for 27 months.

He admitted to four offences of supplying heroin and crack cocaine.

The four men were the latest defendants to be sentenced for their involvement in drugs supply lines that operated in broad daylight.
