A suspected drug dealer who is also facing a firearms charge is on the run and could be in Sheffield.
Mohammed Anwaar, aged 29, of Sheffield, was due to appear before Sheffield Crown Court on Wednesday, October 17, for trial charged with two counts of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs, two counts of money laundering, possession of cannabis and possession of a firearm.
But he failed to appear at court and detectives are now appealing for the public’s help as they step up their attempts to track him down.
Detective Constable Paolo Messina said: “Anwaar is fully aware that he is now wanted by police and that he is potentially facing a stint behind bars.
