Drug dealer faces jail
4:20pm Wednesday 30th October 2013 in News
A BURY drug dealer has been warned he is likely to go to prison for his latest offence.
Rashid Oqbal, aged 27, of East Street, pleaded guilty at Bolton Crown Court to possessing cannabis with intent to supply.
The court heard that Iqbal was known to police as a drug trafficker and had two previous convictions for possession of drugs including heroin.
In the latest case he was found in possession of cannabis in Bury in April.
The father-of-two was warned by Recorder Thomas that he faces a custodial sentence when he appears for sentence on November 11.
He was bailed to enable the preparation of a pre-sentence report and has been given a curfew between the hours of 9pm and 6am and has been electronically tagged.
