A 19-year-old man has pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply a controlled Class A drug and has been remanded in custody until next month when he will be sentenced.
Nicholas Thomas of Horsenden Crescent in Ealing, London, made off from Operation Revive proactive officers on Thursday, January 5, in Meadow Road, Kettering, before being detained nearby and searched under Section 23 of the Misuse of Drugs Act.
A quantity of controlled Class A drugs was recovered, and Thomas was subsequently arrested on suspicion of possession intent to supply a controlled Class A drug before being charged with the offence.
Thomas appeared before Northampton Magistrates’ Court on Friday (January 6) and pleaded guilty to the offence. He was remanded in custody until February 20, when he will appear at Northampton Crown Court for sentencing.
In May last year, Chief Constable Nick Adderley launched the Force’s Matters of Priority for the next three years, and along with serious violence, serious and organised crime, violence against women and girls, drug harm was included.
Operation Revive is the Force’s hard-hitting enforcement campaign which focuses on bringing the offenders of serious violence associated with Class A drug dealing and gangs to justice.
