A 23-year-old man has been jailed for three years after being found guilty of being concerned in the supply of cannabis, crack cocaine and heroin.
Ahmed Alhadad, of Tamworth Grove, Clifton, was a passenger in a car which was stopped on Kennington Road, Radford in November 2016 after officers spotted it had a brake light out.
Officers smelt cannabis and found empty deal bags in the car and following a search of Alhadad, he was found to be in possession of cannabis, two mobile phones and £100 in cash. The mobile phones were seized and analysed, which showed evidence of Alhadad being involved in the supply of drugs.
Alhadad denied the offences but was found guilty by a jury at Nottingham Crown Court and was sentenced yesterday (Thursday 5 April). He was sentenced to three years for being concerned in the supply of heroin, three years concurrently for being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine and eight months concurrently for being concerned in the supply of cannabis.
PC Tom Andrews, who stopped Alhadad in November 2016 and ran the investigation, said ‘‘Alhadad may have only had a small amount of cannabis in his possession but his behaviour led officers to suspect something more serious. Phone evidence showed that Alhadad was selling class A drugs and he was convicted off the back of this. This shows that Nottinghamshire Police and the Courts take the supply of drugs very seriously and will always investigate suspected drug dealers to the fullest extent.”
