Drug dealer from Birmingham was found with more than a million pounds worth of heroin in the boot of his car.
Earlier this year Jahnger Ahmed was stopped by officers on the motorway travelling towards Birmingham.
The 41-year-old must have been quaking in his boots as officers searched his vehicle on the busy M6.
When officers searched the vehicle, they were left flabbergasted by a compartment inside the boot made from plywood it revealed a hiding place with two black canvas bags full of heroin.
Officers found 19 packages of Heroin, which has a street value of £1,775,000, with a wholesale value of around £344,000.
Ahmed, of Torrey Grove in Bordesley Green, was sentenced to 11 years in prison at Birmingham Crown Court on Friday (13 April) for possession with intent to supply a Class A drug.
A spokeswoman for West Midlands Police said: “He was stopped in his car by officers on the M6 motorway travelling towards Birmingham in January, after information linked his Volkswagen Passat car to the supply of controlled drugs.
“On searching the car, officers became suspicious of an area in the boot which was found to be a sophisticated compartment made of plywood which was concealing two black canvas bags full of heroin.
Leading the investigation, DC Chris Woodward from the Force CID team, said:
“This was a significant haul of heroin which no doubt would have ended up on the streets of the West Midlands.
“It had the potential to cause widespread harm within communities in the Midlands. ”
“It’s a clear message, if we suspect you of being involved in illegal activity, we will get you
