A 17-year-old boy from Woking was sentenced to 24 months in a detention and training centre by Guildford magistrates last week after admitting repeatedly supplying class A drugs.

He had been arrested several times mainly on drug offences between June 2020 and March 2021 but kept breaching bail conditions.

In total, he pleaded guilty to nine separate offences of offering to supply drugs and supplying and possessing criminal property.

Following a large investigation into drug dealing in Woking and Guildford, police found the boy, too young to name, had several phones, wraps of class A drugs, large amounts of money and a list in his bedroom of the names and phone numbers of known drug-users. A huge volume of drug-related messages were on the phones.

Officers said he could be extremely aggressive and once had to be taken to hospital after he swallowed a small package when being held.

Inspector Dave Bentley, Woking borough commander, said: “It will come as a great relief to many residents in the west of the county that this prolific offender has been sentenced to detention centre.

“This offender showed total disregard for the terms of his bail, for the orders of the court and for the community he lives in. We firmly believe he would not have stopped offending had he remained on our streets.”
