A Huddersfield man has been jailed for 32 months at Leeds Crown Court after drugs with a street value of more than £6000 were discovered at his home address during an early morning police raid. 
 
Harass Chohan, aged 23 of King Cliffe Road in Birkby was sentenced on Thursday, 18 August after he pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply drugs.
 
The investigation into Chohan was launched in December 2015 after two men were arrested by officers acting suspiciously outside Huddersfield train station. The men were found in possession of a large amount of cannabis. The drugs were seized and when they were forensically examined Chohan’s fingerprints were discovered.

Officers raided his house on 20 April 2016 and 60 grams of cocaine in 501 wraps and 15 grams of heroin in 120 wraps, which had a combined street value of £6620, were discovered in a hidden and locked safe.

Two Bretling watches valued at £16,000 and £862 was also seized and has since been confiscated under the Proceeds of Crime Act.
 
Investigating officer DC Jason Ridgeway said “This is a welcomed sentence given the large quantity of drugs found at Chohan’s home and I hope it will send a clear message to those supplying drugs, we will always take robust action to make sure you are brought to justice.”
