Bingham man jailed for cocaine dealing

A drug dealer was caught by police hiding wraps of cocaine behind a dashboard panel in his car.

Members of Nottinghamshire Police’s knife crime team spotted 21-year-old Sanyar Bakhshudeh driving a black Ford Fiesta in the Radford area of Nottingham on 1 October 2022.

Acting on their suspicions, they followed the car before stopping it on Highurst Street.

When they searched the car, they found 22 deal bags of cocaine concealed behind a panel on the central console of the vehicle.

Bakhshudeh, formerly of  Bingham, was arrested and went on to plead guilty to possession with intent to supply a Class A drug and being concerned in the supply of cannabis between 6 October 2020 and 10 October 2020.

Bakhshudeh, who also admitted to breaching a suspended sentence order, was jailed for a total of four years and one month.

He appeared at Nottingham Crown Court for sentencing on Monday (6 June 2023) along with another drug dealer – 23-year-old Amman Din Mohammed.

Mohammed, formerly of Dennis Avenue, Beeston, pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of cocaine and cannabis between 6 October 2020 and 10 October 2020.

He also admitted possession with intent to supply MDMA, a Class A drug, on 9 October 2020.

Mohammed ran from a car which police had stopped in the Lenton area of Nottingham on 9 October 2020. He was detained by a police dog after a brief chase and discarded a package of drugs before he was captured.

He was locked up for a total of three years and four months.

Chief Inspector Karl Thomas, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Drug dealing is a very serious matter which ruins lives. The effects are felt far and wide and this type of criminality is often linked to violence, weapon offences and acquisitive crime

“With Bakhshudeh and Mohammed now off our streets that’s two fewer dealers blighting our neighbourhoods.

“As a force we are determined to root out drug dealers who seek to exploit the vulnerabilities of users and their addictions for their own selfish financial gain.

“I hope these sentences act as a deterrent and a warning to other drug dealers that we will continue to do everything we can to track them down and bring them to justice.”
