Wakey Wines owner says police were searching for 'Class A drugs' in shop 'raid'
| Last updated
Wakey Wines has had far from a smooth journey on its quest to be the best shop in Wakefield.
Owner Mohammad Azar Nazir did not hesitate in informing the world:
Taking to TikTok yesterday, Nazir shared a video of himself inside the now-famous shop holding a document allegedly from West Yorkshire Police.
He began by greeting fans of the shop, which has made a name for itself selling Prime energy drinks, then explained: "Quarter past three today, we got raided by West Yorkshire Police. Guess what for? Class A drugs."
Nazie then added: "But I'm a changed man. Only thing I sell now is Prime and WFD sweets and that's about it."
He then thanked his haters before asking the person filming to 'come closer' to the document, which appeared to confirm his claim that no illegal substances were found in the shop.
"Carry on hating me," Nazir said. "You do what you gotta do. I will do what I gotta do, me and my team. I've left that lifestyle."
He then revealed that while the shop was closed for an hour and half and 'you got the dogs in', the haters, who he assumed were behind the raid, were ultimately unsuccessful in taking down the shop.
"Police are only doing their job, aren't they?" Nazir asserted. "You've done a job."
He then referred to the document he was holding and said: "That proves it. Boss man at Wakey Wines is a legit guy."
As you can imagine, the post has gone far from unnoticed since it was posted yesterday (3 March) and social media users were quick to weigh in on what they were seeing.
One TikTok user couldn't help but refer to the shop's reputation for selling overpriced bottles of Prime, joking: "2 crates of prime seized with an estimated street value of £2.6 million."
A second praised the shop owner for being honest about his past, adding: "At least he admitted he has done it."
"That’s a shame, it's cheaper to buy Class As [sic]," joked a second.
"He doesn't have to sell them he just sell prime for the same price," wrote a fourth.
"Plot twist," remarked a fifth of the possession allegation. "It's in the sweet bag."
