Suspecting he was dealing drugs, officers caught up with the boy and found 27 wraps of crack cocaine and 15 wraps of heroin hidden in his bottom. He also had £50 in cash.

At Cambridge Crown Court yesterday (Monday August 17), the boy was sentenced to a 12 month detention and training order after previously pleading guilty to possession with intent to supply heroin and crack cocaine and possession of cannabis.

PC Nathan Stuart from the team said: “I hope this result will serve as a deterrent to other young people and the teenager will use this opportunity to turn his life around.”
