A drug-dealer has been jailed at Sheffield Crown Court.

The defendant, who has previous convictions including supplying cannabis, pleaded guilty to two counts of possessing class A drugs concerning the heroin and crack-cocaine with intent to supply.

Ian Goldsack, defending, said Mohammed was drawn into dealing because he had accrued a drug-debt through his own cannabis misuse.

Mr Goldsack added: “It appears to be a drugs debt acquired through cannabis misuse and subsequently he stopped using drugs but had the debt and was pressed into supplying drugs and was arrested.”

He added: “He had a debt left behind him and he was pressed into supplying drugs on this occasion.”

Judge Sarah Wright sentenced Mohammed to 32 months of custody.

She told him: “You were found in your flat with a substantial amount of cash and a large amount of class A drugs including crack-cocaine and heroin which you were dealing.”
