A DRUG dealer who was distributing in Barnsley has been jailed for more than six years.

Mustafa Mahmood, 28, from Sheffield, was found with £3,000 in cash hidden in a pocket of a jacket and numerous items of expensive designer clothes and footwear.

A black bag was also recovered, which contained 180 grams of heroin and 88 grams cocaine, with a street value of up to £25,000.

Officers recovered several mobile phones, including Mahmood’s personal iPhone, on which they found videos Mahmood had recorded of himself boasting about his earning of £1,000 a day through drug supply.

Mahmood also videoed himself dealing drugs to users over the wall to the rear of his property.

When officers arrived at his address several wraps of cocaine were ready to be distributed to Mahmood’s two drug lines in Barnsley and Sheffield.

He was sentenced to six years and six months in prison after appearing before Sheffield Crown Court earlier this month.

PC Gareth Webb, who is based in the Operation Fortify department and the officer in charge of this case, said: “Mahmood had been dealing Class A drugs for several months under his street name of ‘Boosta’.

“His run of good luck ended with a warrant executed by Fortify officers in April of this year and the amount of heroin and cocaine recovered identified him as a well-connected dealer making large sums of money through his criminality.

“Mahmood was found to be operating two drug lines at the same time, one in Sheffield one in Barnsley.

“The volumes of drugs dealt through the lines was estimated at almost two kilos over a six-month period.

“Mahmood even had the audacity to film himself dealing drugs and boasting about how much money he was making every day.

“I welcome the six-and-a-half-year custodial sentence and hope this shows that we will work tirelessly to put these criminals behind bars.”
