Los Angeles, July 06, 2023 A.Gary Singh

A disqualified Indian-origin driver who was caught with more than GBP 1 million worth of cocaine after being stopped by officers has been sentenced to seven years and four months.

Sukhchain Dale was found with a large stash of Class A banned drugs after his van was pulled over by police on the highway near Birmingham in May. The haul which had a street value of over GBP 1 million was seized and the 36-year-old driver was arrested.

“Dale pleaded guilty to possession of drugs with intent to supply and disqualified driving and was jailed for seven years and four months at Birmingham Crown Court on Monday (June 26),” West Midlands Police said in a statement this week.

West Midlands Police spokesperson said: "Drugs ruin lives and lead to further crime within our communities. We're now running Operation Target in a tough stance against a range of serious offences from drug dealing and burglary to cyber-crime and fraud. Officers are using local intelligence, seizing goods, carrying out warrants and targeting suspects as part of the ongoing operation."
