Drugs deal teen jailed.
Liverpool Crown Court heard that on the afternoon of September 24, police officers in the Poulton Road area saw a group of suspected drug users apparently waiting for a drugs deal.
The officers parked in Alderley Road and then saw Paul Carney, 19, approach them and cough something into his hand which he then handed to one of the group, who in turn passed it to the others, said Derek Jones, prosecuting.
The officers detained Carney, who struggled violently before 12 small bags fell from his mouth.
One of these contained heroin and the others crack cocaine, each worth about pounds 5.
He said he had only been dealing a few days but made no comment when interviewed.
Carney pleaded guilty to supplying crack cocaine, possessing it with intent to supply and possessing heroin with intent to supply.
His barrister John Dixon said that he had made no financial gain but had done it purelyin an attempt to finance his own drug habit.
The court heard that Carney, of Grantham Street, Kensington, Liverpool, has previous convictions including similar offences.
