A convicted drug dealer from Bradford has six months to repay over £62,000 or will have 14 months added onto his sentence.

Mohammed Javaid, 41, was arrested after officers executed a warrant at an address on Ingleby Road, Bradford in January 2011, where £48,000 worth of crack cocaine was seized, as well as £8,200 in cash.

Javaid, who was charged with producing crack cocaine and possession with intent to supply Class A drugs, was jailed for five and a half years in June 2013.

Confiscation proceedings ended on 26 September at Bradford Crown Court, where His Honour Judge Burn ordered Javaid to repay £62,918.84 under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

Detective Sergeant Karen Milner of the Bradford District POCA team said: “We are pleased with this latest seizure, which again demonstrates our ability to hit criminals where it hurts, in their pocket.

“We hope this serves as a warning to those involved in crime that we will not only look to arrest and convict you, but we will then use all available legislation to strip you of any assets believed to have been gained through criminal activity.”

The money will be re-invested in projects aimed at tackling crime.
