Drugs and firearm seized in West Yorkshire
Three people have been charged with conspiracy to supply class A drugs following an investigation led by the National Crime Agency’s Armed Operations Unit.
Mohammed Abbas, 29 and Rameez Anjum, 26 both of Cross Road, Bradford and Shaun Kellett, 40 of no fixed abode, were arrested by officers from the NCA and West Yorkshire Police on the 18 August 2016.
Following their arrests, a number of properties were searched and officers found several kilos of heroin, as well as various drug paraphernalia consistent with the large scale supply of class A drugs.
Rameez Anjum has also been charged with possession of a firearm after officers found a handgun in a property associated to him. A quantity of ammunition was also recovered and is undergoing further analysis.
All three have been remanded in custody until their next hearing on 16 September 2016 at Leeds Crown Court.
Brent Lyon, Operations Manager for the NCA’s Armed Operations Unit said:
“Our investigation relates to the supply of large quantities of class A drugs across West Yorkshire. We believe these arrests have significantly disrupted the activities of this well organised crime group.
“The seizure of a firearm and ammunition indicates the violent nature of those involved in this level of criminality and we will continue to work with our colleagues from West Yorkshire Police as our enquiry continues.”
