Abbas Khan and Mohammed Kaleem, both 22, Caught in Uninsured BMW with Cannabis

Abbas Khan of Acre Avenue in Bradford and Mohammed Kaleem, of Alexandra Street in Bradford, both 22, caught in an uninsured BMW with bags of cannabis in Bradford Road, Cleckheaton , when the officers pulled them over.

Police found drugs in the glove box when they pulled the vehicle over in Cleckheaton. The drug was also found in the glove compartment of the vehicle.

There were seven bags of the Class B drug in total and Khan, said that these were for his own use.

Kirklees magistrates were told he has a previous conviction from November last year for driving while unfit through drugs.

Khan admitted possession of a controlled drug and magistrates fined him £80. Khan’s friend Kaleem pleaded guilty to using a vehicle without insurance.

He will have to pay £85 costs and £30 victim surcharge and the cannabis seized will be forfeited and destroyed.

The court heard that police initially stopped the BMW because it was flagged up as having no insurance.

Kaleem was driving the vehicle and said that it belonged to his brother. He was banned from driving for six months. Magistrates fined him £120 and he will have to pay £85 court costs plus £30 victim surcharge.
