A man has been sentenced to three years behind bars after pleading guilty to drug, firearm and driving offences.
Fazal Munir, aged 28, from Aldershaw Close in Parkside, Stafford, was jailed at Stafford Crown Court on Tuesday (2 August) after admitting possession with intent to supply cocaine, possession of cocaine, possession of ammunition and dangerous driving. He was also handed a 42-month driving ban.
The court heard how disqualified driver Munir was driving a hire car, which was not in his name, in 2018 and 2019, when officers pulled him over.
In 2018, when Munir was stopped in the vehicle, he was searched and a quantity of cocaine was discovered.
A subsequent search of his home address revealed a quantity of cash.
In 2019, he was found to be the driver of a hire car dumped in Stafford. His home was searched again and this time, officers found not only cash, but two 9mm rounds of live ammunition and a part of a revolver hand gun.
In total £3,085 of cash was seized from Munir and his property as part of the case.
Speaking following sentencing, Sergeant Thomas Fotherby, the officer in the case, said: “Munir did not learn his lesson and was intent on criminality.
“Not only did he put other road users at risk, but his actions also had an impact on the community with his drug possession and ammunition found at his home.
“I’m glad he has been handed a custodial sentence and hope it shows how persistent officers are in ensuring we get offenders off our streets.”
