A MAN serving jail sentences totalling nine and a half years for conspiracy to rob and storing Class A drugs and ammunition at his home will pay back just £1 for his criminality.

Mohammed Shah, 21, was brought back to Bradford Crown Court yesterday for a confiscation hearing under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

Shah, formerly of Stonegate Road, Bradford, now of no fixed address, was ruled by Judge Jonathan Rose to have benefited to the tune of £15,287 from his offending.

The sum is the wholesale value of the crack cocaine and heroin he was warehousing when the police raided his address.

Giles Bridge, barrister for the Crown, said Shah’s available assets were a nominal £1.

Shah was sentenced to a total of three and a half years’ custody last October after the police seized 133g of crack cocaine, with a purity of 78 per cent and a street value of nearly £10,000, and 412g of heroin, with a purity of 28 per cent and a street value of around £30,500.

The officers also found 13 hollow point firearms cartridges which were tested and found to be viable.

Shah, then 20, had earlier been sentenced to six years in a young offender institution for his part in a conspiracy to carry out a spate of robberies on G4S cash-in-transit vans.

He was locked up along with four others in December 2017 for the "carefully and professionally planned offences".

In May 2017, a female driver was attacked with a machete outside the Tesco Express shop on Bolton Road, Bradford.

CCTV footage showed one of the robbers carrying a machete in a struggle that saw the victim thrown to the floor before the offenders made off with a cash box containing more than £11,000.

The two men then made off to join two others in a waiting Ford Focus car later found burnt out in the Silverhill Road area of Bradford.

The group also targeted another Tesco store in Stanningley but were foiled before reaching the shop.

While Shah was in custody for the robberies, the police executed a search warrant at his home address.

He was said to have been motivated by money in relation to the drugs.

Shah was sentenced to an extra three and a half years on top of the six years - two years for the drugs offences and eighteen months for possession of the cartridges.

The Proceeds of Crime Act hearing related to the drugs offences only.
