NCA: Bradford men convicted of supplying heroin across UK

Recommended Posts

13 July 2018

Two men from Bradford have been found guilty of conspiring to supply heroin across the UK.

Farriman Khan (46) and Francis Cooper (61) both from Reynolds Avenue were arrested on 18 October 2017 by the National Crime Agency’s Armed Operations Unit (AOU) following a lengthy investigation.

On 1 July 2016, Cooper drove a white transit van to Streatham in South London and met Carl Stanley (41). Officers observed Cooper hand something to Stanley before they both drove away in separate vehicles.

Stanley’s vehicle was stopped by officers from the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) in the same street and he was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a class A drugs. They found two blocks in his car which was later confirmed to be approximately two kilos of heroin, with an estimated street value of £198,000.

The AOU investigated the handover and identified Farriman Khan as the facilitator of the drugs exchange.

Both Khan and Cooper were arrested in October 2017 and officers searched the property in Reynolds Avenue. They recovered a number of mobile phones, SIM cards, computer devices and more than £69,000 cash.

Cooper pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply class A drugs at an earlier hearing on 10th April 2018 and Khan was found guilty on the 12th July following a trial at Leeds Crown Court. Both were remanded in custody until sentencing on the 3rd August.

Stanley was jailed for four years in January.

Tim Gregory, NCA senior investigating officer said: “Khan has an extensive criminal history and seemingly no respect for law enforcement as he continued to offend while on licence from prison.

“He and Cooper have been found guilty of supplying vast amounts of class A drugs across the UK– drugs which fuel further crime, violence and exploitation and I have no doubt the public are safer now they are both behind bars”.
