Two men were jailed after they were netted in a police crackdown on drug dealing in Halifax town centre.

Mohammed Din, 28, of Westbury Fold, Westbury Street, Elland, and Antzar Ali, 36, of Chestnut Street, Halifax, were sentenced at Bradford Crown Court.

Both pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs in 2019.

Din was jailed for four and a half years and Ali was imprisoned for four years.

The Recorder of Bradford, Judge Richard Mansell QC, said the men had been involved with others in the trafficking of large quantities of heroin and crack cocaine.

Their DNA had been found on drugs packaging seized from vehicles and the police found footage on a phone of drug deals taking place.

Judge Mansell said it was a very serious and substantial operation in which both men were involved at a managerial level for profit.

Ali was cutting and bagging “a huge quantity of drugs” and had £1,600 in cash and a stash of drugs seized from his home.

Din was higher up in the chain as a “hands on” manager supplying the street runners with drugs to sell.

Paul Addison, for Din, said he was on a low wage and saw it as a way of making extra money. He was the father of three young children and references spoke well of him.

Simon Hustler, for Ali, said he had no relevant previous convictions. He had been on an electronically monitored curfew since last June.
