Dealer with knife forced to handover drug deal profits

A drug dealer who was chased through Cardiff wielding a huge hunting knife has had thousands of pounds of his dirty money confiscated.

Muaz Tarafdar has been stripped of £13,875 made through his illicit activities after a Proceeds of Crime Act hearing before Judge Eleri Rees at Cardiff Crown Court.

During the hearing, the court was told of an incident in which the 21-year-old assaulted a police officer after being witnessed in an apparent drug deal.

Hashim Salmman, defending, said his client achieved GCSEs and was working hard as a waiter at his family’s restaurant before he became addicted to crack cocaine. He will now have three months to pay and would have to go to prison for six months if he did not. His property is already with the prosecution and is due to be auctioned.
