A teenage drug dealer was sent to prison for four months today for peddling Class A drugs.
The 16-year-old from Taverham, who can not be identified for legal reasons, was caught with drugs in Cambridge on July 5 this year and attempted to swallow them when stopped by a police officer.
He pleaded guilty at Norwich Youth Court today to possessing with intent to supply crack cocaine and heroin.
The court heard that the boy had since left the area where he was recruited to supply drugs for a payment of between £30 to £60 a day.
District Judge Peter Veits said: “I accept you are a middleman but you are still doing this on a big scale. This is serious supply of drugs. You had a lot of drugs on you and money. I would be shirking my responsibility if I didn’t impose immediate custody on you.”
