A Bradford cabbie was jailed for more than three years after ferrying heroin across the county for a major drugs dealer.
Detectives carried out a four-month covert surveillance operation during which they trailed Mohammed Yasin, 38, as he delivered drugs in bulk from Bradford to Hull for Mohammed Ali, 40, of Park View, Halifax.
The drugs were to be cut with paracetamol and caffeine and mixed in a blender to supply to street dealers. The amount seized by police was enough to create 6,800 street deals estimated to be worth £68,000.
The police intercepted the first shipment organized by Ali to be sent to Leonard Gibson, 60, who was working for major Hull underworld drug dealer Mark Armstrong, 48, on August 22 last year. Hull Crown Court heard Ali and Yasin, of Victoria Street, Cleckheaton , were in phone contact with each other as the drugs set off from Bradford to be driven along the M62 for a meeting with Gibson near Hull’s Pearson Park.
