08/05/2013

Three men who manufactured £1.3 million of the highly-addictive Class A drug ‘crystal meth’ in the first laboratory of its kind ever seen in Yorkshire have been sentenced to nearly two decades in prison.

Jabbar Hyder, Christian Allday and Thomas  Cadden who manufactured £1.3 million of the highly-addictive Class A drug crystal meth in the first laboratory of its kind ever seen in Yorkshire have been sentenced to nearly two decades in prison.

Julian Briggs, Senior Crown Prosecutor, CPS Yorkshire and Humberside said:

"Methylamphetamine  or crystal methis a highly dangerous drug, more addictive even than heroin.  In the first seizure of its kind in West Yorkshire, over 27 kilos of this potentially lethal substance, with a street value of approximately £1.3 million  was seized by the police.  This was a vast quantity, capable of blighting the lives of  a great many individuals. Thankfully, it  never found its way onto the streets of West Yorkshire.

"Having built a robust prosecution case, Hyder and his accomplices pleaded guilty and they have today been sentenced to a total of 19 years. This sends out a strong signal that we will not tolerate this type of illegal activity in our communities and we will always vigorously prosecute this type of offending."
