The following cases have recently been before the courts involving people from Oldham.

These cases all called at Tameside Magistrates’ Court.

Adam Sher was given a conditional discharge after he admitted having cannabis on his possession.

The offence took place in Old Trafford in August last year.

The 23-year-old was also found to have driven a Volkswagen without insurance, however he was not given any penalty points because the court ruled he reasonably and honestly believed he was insured by the hire company.

The man from Werneth Hall Road in Oldham was given a conditional discharge for a year in relation to the cannabis, meaning if he avoids further offending he will receive no more punishment.

Omar Alam appeared in court accused of a range of drug and vehicle related offences.

The 49-year-old is accused of assisting in the retention and disposal of a vehicle in Oldham on a single day in June last year.

On the same day he is accused of having heroin, cocaine and crack in his possession with the intention of selling them.

The case against the 49-year-old was deemed too serious to be dealt with in that court.

It was sent to Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court, where Alam will appear next month.

Sarfraz Nazir faced the same three allegations in relation to drugs as Alam, but was not charged with the stolen goods offence.

The 37-year-old will appear alongside him at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court.

Kasim Miah was banned from the roads after he admitted driving under the influence of cannabis.

The 19-year-old was found behind the wheel of a Volkswagen Golf on Abbey Hills Road in November last year.

He was found to have 17.5 micrograms of the drug in his blood.

The teenager, from Old School Avenue in Chadderton, was banned from holding a driving licence for a year and additionally given a fine of £120.
