A DRUG user pulled over by police in a routine vehicle check has been jailed after officers found heroin in his car.
Officers stopped Zulfiqar Younis’s Toyota Avensis in a traffic operation in Victoria Road, Fenton, on March 4.
They asked Younis to drive to Cromer Road highways depot in Northwood for his vehicle to be checked over – only to become suspicious when the 22-year-old started to drive very slowly.
And once in Northwood police found heroin hidden inside the car by the defendant during the journey.
Now Younis, of Argyll Street, Normacot, has been jailed for 16 months.
