More than £120,000 worth of cannabis and cocaine was discovered in the Mitsubishi 4x4 parked outside a Cambridge house.

Maroof Rahman, 30, of Golding Road, Cambridge, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply class A and B drugs and possession of criminal property at Cambridge Crown Court yesterday (20 July).

The court heard how in April this year a PCSO walked past the car, a Mitsubishi 4x4, in the parking area of Golding Road and smelt cannabis.

Officers attended and searched the car and found 140 bags of cannabis worth £43,000.

The car was registered to a property in Golding Road where officers found Rahman and arrested him for possession with intent to supply class B drugs.

A search of the house found more than 3g of cocaine, with a street value of £250, just over £3,900 in cash and the keys to the Mitsubishi and an Audi A5 Quattro.

The Audi was searched and 34g of cocaine with a street value of £2,700 was seized as well as £769 in cash.

Both cars were forensically examined and a further kilo of uncut cocaine with a street value of £80,000 and cannabis resin valued at £2,000 was found in the Mitsubishi.

Sergeant Paul Street said: “The quantity of drugs in Rahman’s possession demonstrated that he was dealing.

“This sentence is a reminder that we will relentlessly pursue those in the business of selling drugs.”
