A large amount of money was found stuffed in his chest pocket and a subsequent strip search resulted in wraps of crack cocaine being seized.

After being taken into custody, officers executed a search of Hamza’s property.

In the attic a sports bag was located with excess of £30,000 of cash inside and a further £500 found in the kitchen along with two burner phones that were used to send text messages offering the sale of drugs.

The evidence from the ongoing investigation and the subsequent arrest while Hamza was on police bail resulted in his immediate charge.

On Wednesday 29 June Hamza appeared at Teesside Magistrates Court to be sentenced after pleading guilty to conspiracy to supply class A and money laundering.

He was told he will serve four years and three months in jail.
