A substantial amount of drugs was found in a van that appears to have been largely abandoned for a month.
Officers in the Bradford West area say they received reports of a vehicle that had been abandoned for over a month, prompting them to go and check it out. Reports of two men regularly coming and going to the van further raised their suspicion, but the fact the van never moved was an interesting observation for cops once the van was brought to their attention.
Cops found a large amount of cannabis that was bagged and “dealer ready” when they finally got to the van. The precise amount has not been given to the press by West Yorkshire Police Cops say a “substantial” amount of Class A drugs was in the van, leading them to seize both the van and the drugs. Locals in the area told The Eye Of Media.Com that they believe drug dealers in the area had a substantial amount of drugs in the van that was being moved out in bits, but that the quantity was so much that it would be too risky to move it all at once.
An anonymous source from the Bradford area close to the vicinity the van was found told The Eye Of Media.Com:
”There are some heavy shutters(slang for dealers) ere, they deal with big bits. Nobody messes with them, and they were probably paranoid they were being watched. Also some people don’t want to keep very large quantity of drugs in an apartment, just in case they get raided by the police, or a rival kicks their door down and turns up wit a gun or a meat cleaver to rob their drugs. You get drug dealers who sell day and night and acquire a lot of money of money for weeks or sometimes even months, only for one or two people to smash their door down in 2 mins and take weeks or months wort of money and drugs from them. You see, the big guys who move these bits are not usually the ones shutting(dealing) them on a daily and night basis, its their runners(workers) that run the show on the ground, and they are often vulnerable to attack from tougher and meaner drug rivals. By the time the big boys behind the scene get their, the damage is done.
”The two guys seen going to the van are likely to be the big boys behind the scene moving them in bits to their base, and moving some else where. They will usually take turns, rotate with each other. It is quite a shock that so much drugs was found in a van that never moved for a month, but you can bet their was a lot more before”.
