Jail for heroin dealer caught with drugs up his bum in Stafford
A man who was found with drugs hidden up his bum when he was stopped and searched by police has been jailed for five years.
Mohammed Rahman was found with heroin and cocaine when he was stopped as he left the M6 near Stafford.
Rahman, aged 24, was arrested on July 27 2017 after police officers suspected he was acting as a drug courier.
Judge Michael Chambers, sentencing at Stafford Crown Court on Monday, told Rahman: "You were doing this for financial reward and for your own benefit.
"You know all too well the human tragedy caused by class A drugs."
His car was stopped in Eccleshall Road, Stafford, just after midnight and the tag end of a wrap of drugs was seen poking from his bottom following a search, the court was told.
In total 48 wraps were found in his possession with a street value of around £1,000.
Thirty three wraps of crack cocaine (6.6g) and 15 wraps of heroin (1.24g) were discovered.
He was stopped after he left the M6 at Junction 14, Stafford North, travelling from Birmingham with the heroin and cocaine.
Rahman, of Sandhill Farm Close, Ladywood, Birmingham, was found guilty of possession with intent to supply heroin and crack cocaine following a trial at Stafford Crown Court.
He was given five-year sentences for each offence, to be served concurrently.
Pc Nathan Bromage, of Stafford Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “Rahman had done his best to conceal the class A drugs he was carrying and intending to sell in Stafford.
"We're grateful for the help of our colleagues in Central Motorways Policing Group in stopping Rahman and working with us to prevent him bringing drugs into the town.
"The message is clear: we will not tolerate drug-dealing and the misery it brings in Staffordshire.
"We will bring you before the courts.”
