Dealer with £4,000 in cocaine and heroin smashes into Morrisons trolley bay while escaping police

A hapless drug dealer who tried to flee a police chase in his car was caught after he managed to get his car wedged in a Morrisons car park. 

Asim Akram, 37, had an estimated £4,000-worth of heroin and crack cocaine in his possession along with hundreds of pounds in cash when he smashed into the supermarket trolley bay in Banbury, Oxford. 

Akram and a passenger had been tailed by officers in unmarked police cars following reports they were involved in supplying drugs.

The detectives called for back-up and two marked police units swooped while Akram's Honda was parked at the Oxfordshire supermarket.

Akram and his accomplice, Ibrar Hussain, were both jailed at Oxford Crown Court this week for drug offences.
