Drug Dealer jailed after leading Police on 90mph Chase f

He refused to provide details of who he was.

Adeel Majid, aged 26, of Leeds, was jailed for six years after he was found with over £500 of heroin and cocaine. Prior to his arrest, the drug dealer sped off in a BMW at 90mph.

Bradford Crown Court heard that he was on his third strike.

Drugs squad officers pursued Majid from Rooley Lane, south Bradford until he abandoned the car in Heath Street, in Bradford Moor, and was arrested nearby.

Kate Bisset, prosecuting, explained that the police noticed that Majid was “standing awkwardly” and clenching his buttocks.

He was panting and very nervous “like a deer in the headlights looking for a means of escape”.

Majid was searched at the police station. A large white package was found on him containing drugs worth £528.

Miss Bisset revealed that there were 61 wraps of crack cocaine up to 89% purity, 27 wraps of heroin at 27% purity and five bags of cocaine worth £314.

It was heard that Majid was pursued by the police because the BMW was linked to drug dealing.

The car accelerated to twice the 30mph speed limit and then sped off at 90mph.

Majid and another man abandoned the car and they were seen fleeing towards Amberley Court.

Miss Bisset said that Majid was panicking and on his phone. He refused to provide details of who he was. Majid was also in possession of cash and three phones.

Majid later said he had put the drugs in his shorts and fled.

Majid pleaded guilty to three offences of possession of Class A drugs with intent to supply and one charge of possessing cash as criminal property, all on December 29, 2019.

He was sentenced on a video link to Leeds Prison and with the Skype service.

Majid was previously convicted 10 times. They included two for possession of crack cocaine and heroin with intent to supply.

He was jailed for three years in 2012 and four years in 2017.

The drug dealer was on licence at the time of his arrest in December.

Miss Bisset said that Majid was a “third strike” drug dealer who was in line for a minimum sentence of seven years.

However, in mitigation, he had pleaded guilty ahead of his trial.

Judge Jonathan Rose said Bradford and other cities were “blighted by Class A drugs.”

Even in the last few days, he had heard cases where Class A drug users had resorted to crime to fund their addiction.

Majid had not learned his lesson from his previous jail sentences. He was out to line his pockets from trafficking heroin and cocaine while still on prison licence.

Judge Rose told him: “You could not contain your criminality.”

Telegraph and Argus reported that Majid was jailed for six years.
