A sniffer dog ferreted out a stash of contraband cigarettes stored in an underground ‘James Bond’ style lair.
The specially trained black Labrador sniffed something under the floor at Wars Sawa shop on Kirkgate during a raid by Trading Standards and police last September.
Hidden below the floor was almost £2,500 worth of illicit tobacco in a remote controlled pop-up compartment.
Owner Saman Ahmed Mahmood, 44, was ordered to perform 160 hours of unpaid community work after admitting possessing smuggled tobacco and cigarettes without proper health warnings last week.
David Lodge, Head of West Yorkshire Trading Standards, said: “Officers were shocked to find a “James Bond” style remote controlled under floor concealment containing illegal cigarettes.
