Burnley drug dealer jailed
5:19pm Tuesday 18th December 2012 in News
A DRUG dealer who admitted supplying cocaine, heroin and cannabis in East Lancashire has been jailed for three years and nine months years.
Tahir Khan, 30, of Barden Lane, Burnley, appeared at Burnley Crown Court today after admitting being concerned in the supply of class A and B drugs.
He was arrested after a warrant at his home by Pennine Division’s Targeted Crime Team on August 22.
Heroin, cocaine and cannabis with a street value of over £7,700 was recovered from the house.
Sgt Martin Storey said: “Khan was clearly involved in the distribution of large amounts of drugs that would have been destined for the streets of Burnley. His arrest and conviction should demonstrate that the police will do all they can to target those involved in organised crime.”
