Swift justice after man pleads guilty a day after drugs warrant

13 Jul 2021

A man has pleaded guilty to drugs supply offences a day after we seized more than £8,000 worth of drugs from his home.

Zeeshan Khan, 30, of Connaught Road, Luton, was arrested following the operation in the early hours of Monday (12 July).

Our officers recovered illegal drugs worth an estimated £8,600 as well as around £2,000 in cash.

At Luton Magistrates’ Court today (Tuesday) Khan pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply cocaine, crack cocaine and heroin, as well as possession of cannabis.

He did not enter a plea for a separate charge of possession of criminal property. He is next due to appear in court on 16 August.

Detective Inspector Tom Stean, from our Intelligence team, which led the operation, said: “This case is what you call swift justice.

“Khan has owned up to his crimes early on after our investigation removed any doubt that he was involved in drug dealing on a serious scale.

“We have had a number of major successes in our fight against organised crime over the past few days, taking guns and a significant amount of drugs off the street.

“You can help us continue in our fight against the organised crime gangs. Report any information to us or Crimestoppers and help us put a stop to the gangs causing our communities misery.”

You can report information to us via our online reporting centre.
