Sheffield Crown Court has heard how a drug-offender who admitted possessing cannabis with intent to supply has been warned if he commits another offence he will go to jail.

Police also seized rolls of cash and telephones with text messages using drug terminology, according to Mr Mehran.

Nasr pleaded guilty to possessing the class B drug with intent to supply after the raid on September 24, 2019.

Judge Rachael Harrison said: “He’s running a very close line to going to prison. If he comes back he’s going to prison. There will be no more chances.”

She sentenced Nasr to a two-year community order with a 20-day Rehabilitation Activity Requrement and a two-month curfew.

Judge Harrison told Nasr: “You are on your last chance. If you come back before me, if you do not do the order or commit any other offence, you will go to prison.

"If you and I meet again, you will go to prison for a period of 12 months.”

A further defendant, Ali Abdulkader, aged 21, of Verdon Street, Burngreave, Sheffield, admitted possessing diamorphine with intent to supply and possessing crack cocaine with intent to supply from September 24, 2019, and admitted possessing diamorphine with intent to supply and possessing crack-cocaine with intent to supply from October 4, 2019.

Tim Gaubert, defending, who attended the hearing via a video-link requested Abulkader’s case be adjourned so he could be present at court for Abulkader’s sentencing.

Judge Harrison adjourned Abulkader’s case until December 15 for sentencing to allow the defendant to be represented in court by Mr Gaubert.

She remanded Abulkader in custody and she indicated that he faces a custodial sentence.
