Three alleged drug traffickers arrested in Bradford

Iftikar Khan (33), of Baring Avenue, Bradford, was arrested on 20 February 2016 when officers from the NCA’s Armed Operations Unit observed him loading a holdall into the boot of his vehicle on Quarry Street. When the vehicle was stopped and searched in Canal Road, Bradford, 30 kilos of Class A drugs were seized.

Forensic examination revealed the haul was made up of 21 kilos of heroin, four kilos of cocaine and five kilos that consisted of a mix of heroin, cocaine and cutting agents.

Khan was taken to Bradford Police Station where he was later charged with conspiracy to supply Class A drugs. He appeared at Leeds Magistrates Court this morning and has been remanded in custody until his next hearing at Leeds Crown Court on 20 April.

Following Khan’s arrest, a number of properties were also searched on Quarry Street where officers found two cannabis cultivations and material consistent with the large scale supply of controlled drugs.

A 47-year-old man and a 57-year-old man, both from Bradford, were also arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A and B drugs. Both have been bailed until 20 April 2016.

Brent Lyon, Operations Manager for the NCA’s Armed Operations Unit said:

“Working with our colleagues from West Yorkshire Police, we believe we have disrupted an organised crime group responsible for supplying Class A drugs within the community. These arrests are significant and our investigation continues.”
