Man jailed for 6-years for drug dealing - Luton

21/11/2012

On Thursday, 15 November 2012, at Luton Crown Court a man was found guilty of dealing class A drugs in Luton and was sentenced to 6-years imprisonment.

Farhanul Islam, aged 32, from Cleves Road, Hemel Hempstead, was arrested by undercover officers on 22 June after being stopped in The Arcade in Bury Park.

As the officers began to speak with Islam they noticed a number of bags appearing on the floor close to his feet and on closer inspection found that the bags contained what appeared to be class A drugs.

Forensic analysis of the contents of the bags confirmed the substances were Crack Cocaine and Heroin.

Islam was subsequently charged with two counts of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply.

Islam had previously been found guilty of similar charges, had been sentenced to 54-months imprisonment, and was out on licence when he was arrested in June.
