NEWCASTLE CABBIE WHO SUPPLIED CANNABIS USING HIS JOB AS COVER ESCAPES JAIL


A drug dealing taxi driver peddled cannabis using his job as cover. Chronicle-Live reports that Fashad Mohammad was working for Blue Line Taxis when he abused his position by supplying to users. A court heard suspicions were raised when police saw him pick up one “pas- senger”, drive round the block then drop him off where he had started, in Stepney Lane, Newcastle. Officers approached the buyer and he told them he had just bought a £20 deal. Mohammad was stopped and searched and eight bags of cannabis, worth £160, were found and he had £630 in his jacket pocket. Two mobile phones in the car contained numerous text messages consistent with drugs supply. Claire Anderson, prosecuting, told Newcastle Crown Court: “Numerous

But he added: “Having a taxi licence is a privilege not to be abused.” The judge said had he been dealt with promptly he may have been jailed but due to the delay, together with a posi- tive pre-sentence report, he would suspended the sentence.
