A man found in possession of 107 wraps of Class A drugs by police officers working on a dedicated operation to target serious violence, drug dealing and gangs has been jailed for three and a half years.
Abdul Miah, aged 42, was stopped and searched in Wellingborough on August 9 by officers from Operation Revive, which resulted in the recovery of 95 wraps of heroin, 12 of crack cocaine, and a 15g block of uncut crack cocaine.
He was arrested and charged with possession with intent to supply both Class A drugs, and pleaded guilty at his first court appearance.
On Wednesday, August 23, Miah appeared at Northampton Crown Court for sentencing, where he received 30 months imprisonment for each charge, to be served concurrently.
Miah, of Minerva Way, Wellingborough, was also sentenced to 12 months for the breach of a suspended sentence imposed in January for a burglary offence committed in October 2022, making a total of 42 months imprisonment.
Speaking afterwards, investigating officer Detective Sergeant Jennifer Jacobs, of Operation Revive, said: “Tackling drug harm is a matter of priority for Northamptonshire Police.
“Through Operation Revive we are committed to ridding the streets of Wellingborough of those who sell illegal drugs and cause harm to the community. People living in the town deserve better and we are dedicated to improving their quality of life by targeting those involved in drug crime.”
Operation Revive is the Force’s hard-hitting enforcement campaign which focuses on bringing the offenders of serious violence associated with Class A drug dealing and gangs to justice.
