A DRUG dealer has been warned he is facing an inevitable prison sentence.

Appearing in the dock at Preston Crown Court, Mohammed Waseem Saeed, pleaded guilty to possessing 21.98 grams of cocaine, 10 ecstasy tablets and 104 pink tablets of the anabolic steroid methandienone with intent to supply them in Nelson on February 18.

Saeed, 31, of Montague Street, Brierfield, Nelson, also pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of cannabis between October 4, 2018 and January 20, 2019.

He was given unconditional bail for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.

Judge Heather Lloyd said: “I am going to grant you unconditional bail pending your sentence on April 27 at Burnley Crown Court.

“You must understand the fact that you’re being given bail and I am ordering a pre-sentence report should not be seen by you as the likely sentence because all sentencing options are open, including custody.

“It seems to me custody is inevitable. It’s just a question of how long it will be.”
