A TIP-OFF from the public led police to a major drugs bust in Kirklees.

And now a 25-year old Batley woman has been jailed for two years for drugs offences.

Nasreen Fulat, of Carlinghow, was sentenced at Leeds Crown Court after being found guilty of possessing class A drugs.

Kirklees police carried out the raid on February 27 last year after being told by residents in Enfield Drive of suspicious activity at a house.

When officers searched the house they found hydroponics equipment suspected of being used to produce cannabis.

They also found around 750g of what was later found to be pure cocaine with a street value of over £100,000.

Fulat was duly arrested and charged with class A drugs offences.

Det Con Ian Green, of Kirklees CID, said: “Fulat was found to have been holding onto drugs for local dealers and was being paid to do so.

“As a result of our operation, over £100,000 of class A drugs has been taken off the streets of Kirklees and Fulat will spend two years in prison for her crime.

“This operation was instigated by information we received from people in the local community, who were concerned that something illegal was taking place on Enfield Drive.

“We would therefore like to use this opportunity to thank the public for their calls and encourage others to do the same of they suspect that criminal activity is taking place in their communities.

“People should not be allowed to live off the proceeds of crime and we hope that we have shown here that we will respond to information from the public and do everything in our powers to put offenders before the courts.”
