A County Lines drug dealing duo from Bradford have been jailed for a total of 13 years for conspiring to supply heroin and crack cocaine to Scarborough – bringing ‘nothing but misery to our communities’.

Attique Rafiq, 29, of Folkstone Street, and Mohammed Yaseen Miah, 29, of Heath Terrace, were involved in running the ‘Adam’ line. Rafiq was sentenced yesterday (Thursday 11 July 2024) at Hull Crown Court where he was imprisoned for nine and a half years.

Miah was jailed for three and half years at York Crown Court in March this year. Another member of the conspiracy, Hannah MacKenzie, 25, of Beaverbank Place, Edinburgh, received 16 months in jail, suspended for two years, at the sentencing in March.

They used two deal-lines working in conjunction with each other. Unbeknown to them, the Operation Expedite team were intercepting the broadcast messages offering heroin and crack cocaine for sale to Scarborough drug users throughout June and July 2021.

Detective Constable Darrel Temple said: “Through detailed analysis of the phone data, we were able to determine that the deal-lines were being operated by Rafiq and Miah. We also established that they were using MacKenzie as a street dealer in Scarborough. We were able to detect and dismantle another ‘County Line’ whose Class A drugs would bring nothing but misery to our communities.

“Securing the guilty pleas and significant prison sentences is very satisfying to everyone involved in the case.”
