CASH will be clawed back from a drug dealer.

Libaan Mohammed was jailed for five years after being caught in a police sting.

Prolific criminal Mohammed was arrested by police months after being released from prison while he was still on licence.

He had been serving a five-year jail term for drug dealing, which he was sentenced to in January, 2011.

Mohammed, aged 25, of Royal Court Drive, Heaton, was caught street dealing outside his flat on September 9.

While searching his home police found £12,954 in cash, a rock of crack cocaine and other items used for drug dealing. Nearly £6,500 was made from drug dealing.

Mohammed will have to repay £6,446 after a Oldham Magistrates Court ruled the money was connected to unlawful conduct.
