Luton drug dealer jailed

10 Aug 2021

A man from Luton was jailed for three years and eight months on Friday (6 August) at Luton Crown Court after pleading guilty to drug dealing offences.

Wajid Malik, 41, of Woodcock Road, Luton, was jailed following a police stop in August last year in which he was found in to be in possession of a large quantity of drugs.

On 17 August 2020, at approximately 7.50pm, an unmarked police patrol witnessed a drug deal taking place in a Volkswagen Golf car.

The police officers followed the vehicle and Malik was found to be the only occupant of the car. He was searched and found in possession of 17 wraps of heroin, 68 wraps of crack cocaine and a quantity of cannabis. Additionally, cash and a mobile phone were recovered.

Malik was jailed for 40 months for two counts of possession of Class A drugs to run concurrently. He was also sentenced to a further four months to run consecutively for an assault on an emergency worker.

Detective Constable Mark Amey, who investigated, said: “Drugs are a source of misery and suffering for many people and their families, and are an underlying cause of other types of crime.

“Drug dealing won’t be tolerated in our county and we will continue to bring drug dealers to justice. With support from our communities and partners, we will help people seek the support they need to leave the habit and improve their lives.”

Anyone with information about drug dealing, county lines or child criminal exploitation can contact Bedfordshire Police on 101 or via the force’s online reporting centre.
