BIRMINGHAM — A Birmingham man pleaded guilty this week to drug charges.
According to the United States Department of Justice, Randy Hasan Abdurrahim, 37, pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance. His sentencing is scheduled for October 19, 2022, before United States District Court Judge Madeline Hughes Haikala.
The plea agreement states that on September 2, 2021, while two detectives on patrol were at a Shell gas station on East Lake Boulevard, a Lexus pulled up to the gas pump with the smell of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle. A detective ran the tag through NCIC, and it came back as belonging to a Nissan Altima. The vehicle left the gas station, and the detectives attempted to perform a traffic stop. Abdurrahim refused to stop and fled from detectives; he hopped out of the Lexus and fled on foot as the vehicle rolled down the hill. The detectives pursued Abdurrahim and were able to take him into custody.
Detectives searched the vehicle and recovered four grams of cocaine, nine grams of fentanyl, 6.16 grams of marijuana, 107 grams of methamphetamine, two grams of heroin, and drug paraphernalia.
