A MAN who admitted dealing class A drugs to an undercover police officer will be sentenced next month.

Mohammed Yousaf, 44, was caught in Operation Saucerlake, a police sting that took place across Keighley from May to September last year.

Yousaf, of no fixed abode, appeared at Bradford Crown Court via a video link from Armley Prison, and answered “guilty with mitigations” when 14 charges of supplying heroin and crack cocaine were put to him.

The court heard he had been released from prison on licence in March last year after serving three years of a six-year sentence for drugs-related offences. Yousaf said that in June he had informed his probation officer that he had been approached by drug dealers and placed under pressure to work for them.

The Recorder of Bradford, Judge Roger Thomas QC, agreed to adjourn the case to allow for more details of Yousaf’s claims to be clarified by the probation service.

He remanded Yousaf in custody ahead of a sentencing hearing on April 6.
