A 16-year-old boy has pleaded guilty to possessing crack cocaine with intent to supply.

Two plain clothed CID officers were on patrol in the Bevan Street West area of Lowestoft about 12.20pm on Tuesday, July 5, when they noticed what appeared to be a drug deal taking place.

As the officers approached, the teenager ran and was pursued by the detectives. He was detained a short time later and was found to be in possession of a large cling film wrap. This was later found to contain 48 separate white wraps of a substance that was thought to be cocaine.

The teenager, from south-east London – who can't be named because of his age – was interviewed and charged with possession of crack cocaine, a class A drug, with intent to supply.

He appeared before Norwich Magistrates on Wednesday, July 6, where he pleaded guilty.

He is now due to be sentenced at Bromley Magistrates' Court on August 3.
