A BORDESLEY Green drug dealer found with over a million pounds worth of heroin has been jailed for 11 years.
Jahnger Ahmed, of Torrey Grove was stopped in his car by officers on the M6 motorway travelling towards Birmingham in January, after information linked his Volkswagen Passat car to the supply of controlled drugs.
On searching the car, officers became suspicious of an area in the boot which was found to be a sophisticated compartment made of plywood which was concealing two black canvas bags full of heroin.
The 19 packages found were forensically examined and were discovered to be worth a street value of £1,775,000 with a wholesale value of around £344,000.
Leading the investigation, DC Chris Woodward from the Force CID team, said: “This was a significant haul of heroin which no doubt would have ended up on the streets of the West Midlands.
“It had the potential to cause widespread harm within communities in the Midlands. It’s a clear message, if we suspect you of being involved in illegal activity, we will get you.”
The 41-year-old was sentenced to 11 years in prison at Birmingham Crown Court on April 13 for possession with intent to supply a Class A drug.
