A London man has been convicted of drugs offences after being caught with 11 wraps of heroin and 17 of crack cocaine after being searched in Newbury.
Bradley O’Sullivan, 19, of Fallowfields Drive in Barnet, was a passenger in a car when it was stopped by police in Bear Lane at around 12pm on August 30 last year.
He was searched and the drugs were discovered concealed on his person.
O’Sullivan was charged at Newbury police station on January 17, and pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply both drugs at Oxford Crown Court on June 19.
He is due to be sentenced at the same court on July 20.
Following the conviction, PC Chris Eaton from Newbury police station said: “This was a ‘county lines’ case, where London gangs travel to the home counties in order to sell drugs.
“This is the first of many cases to be heard at crown court this summer after last year’s success rate in arresting ‘county lines’ drug dealers.
“As a force, we are committed to our continued investigations of drug-related offences and we will always seek prosecution of those involved in their supply.
“For anyone of thinking of coming to Newbury to deal drugs – if you come to the area, you will be caught and your offences will not be tolerated.”
