Mohammed Ilyas, 23, of Thornbury Avenue, Thornbury, Bradford, a convicted drug trafficker caught peddling 40 wraps of crack cocaine and heroin from an Audi A1 has been jailed for three years.
His car was pulled over, Ilyas, a rear seat passenger, got out, dropping 1.72 grams of crack cocaine in 20 deals worth £129.
Also seized from the vehicle was a bag containing 20 deals of heroin, of 28 per cent purity, worth £200. A further bag of cannabis was found in the driver’s door pocket of the Audi.
Ilyas had 17 previous convictions, including serving a sentence of more than four years in a young offender institution when he was 16 for a series of violent robberies.
In 2016, he was jailed for three years for possession of heroin and cocaine with intent to supply.
He was on licence when he committed the latest offences, the court was told, although he was not recalled to prison.
By the time he was 16, he was serving the lengthy sentence for the robberies. He was with others when he committed the robberies and his previous conviction for drug peddling was similar to the one he now faced.
Recorder Paul Reid warned Ilyas that a third conviction for Class A drug dealing would mean a minimum seven year prison sentence.
