Police carried out a warrant on 22 February at a property in Foxglove Way, Luton, where drug offences were believed to be taking place.

During the warrant, officers arrested Malik and Khan, while a number of items including around a kilo of cannabis, weapons and drug paraphernalia were seized from the property.

Malik received 12 months for possession with intent to supply Class B drugs and three months for possession of a bladed article, to run consecutively.

He was given a one month sentence for having an offensive weapon, which will run concurrently.

Khan received a 12 month prison term for possession with intent to supply Class B drugs.

In separate proceedings, Emmanuel Cummins, 21, of Kestrel Way, Luton, was jailed for 10 months today (Thursday).

In October officers saw Cummins driving a black Audi TT in Dunstable.

The vehicle was shown to be on false plates. Cummins had also had his provisional licence recently revoked, while the car was showing as being uninsured.

The vehicle was searched and officers recovered two bags of cannabis, cash and a baseball bat.

Further cannabis was recovered at his home address the next day.

Cummins was jailed for eight months for possession with intent to supply Class B



drugs; eight months for driving without a licence, which will be served concurrently, and an additional two months for breaching a suspended sentence.

Detective Inspector Graham McMillan, from the force’s Serious and Organised Crime Unit, said: “Bedfordshire Police is dedicated to cracking down on organised crime and drugs.

“Selling cannabis invariably funds wider organised criminal activities and it is often linked to the exploitation of vulnerable people.

“This includes gangs sending children across the country to sell their drugs, or human trafficking of people to work in cannabis factories.

“I am pleased that these three men will now spend time behind bars, and I hope this sends a strong message that we won’t tolerate drug criminality and activity in our area.”
