A man has been jailed after being found in possession of 'numerous packs of suspected cocaine and crack cocaine' and 'a quantity of cash' after police pulled over a suspicious vehicle in Little Hulton almost a year ago.
The vehicle Ali was driving was stopped on Cleggs Lane, Little Hulton, on April 17, 2020 and was arrested immediately.
It may have take a lot of hard work to get a result but finally Husnain Ali of Rishton Lane in Bolton was jailed after he entered a guilty plea to possession of heroin and crack cocaine with intent to supply, obstructing police and driving with no insurance and was sentenced to three years imprisonment at court.
The arresting officer PC Upton was given praise by both his colleagues and the public for his hard work on the long investigation which lead to Ali finally being jailed.
Officers from GMP wrote on their Facebook Page:
"Who remembers PC Upton’s arrest nearly 12 months ago on Cleggs Lane, Little Hulton?

"As a result, Husnain Ali, born 27/08/1992, of Rishton Lane, Bolton, appeared at Manchester Crown Court on March 5, 2021, and pleaded guilty to possession of heroin and crack cocaine with intent to supply, obstructing police and driving with no insurance and was sentenced to three years imprisonment.
