Teenagers locked up for drug dealing

Two drug dealers from Wellingborough have been sentenced to three years and six months custody.

Ijuha Sterling-Campbell, 19, and a 17-year-old boy, who can t be named for legal reasons, were sentenced at Northampton Crown Court yesterday, Monday, 22 February.

Both pleaded guilty to an array of possession with intent to supply Class A charges at a previous hearing.

Sterling-Campbell, of Chapman Road, Wellingborough, was sentenced to 18 months and the 17-year-old to two years.

The 17-year-old also pleaded guilty to one count of battery which was in relation to the assault of a small child and another of assaulting a police officer who was making attempts to arrest him.

Both offenders were arrested as part of Op Worcester, a police drive to tackle drugs and firearms offences in Wellingborough and East Northamptonshire.

Detective Inspector Lee McBride, from Op Worcester, said:  These two individuals were involved in the supply of more than £6,000 worth of Class A drugs in Wellingborough and it is good to know they are no longer on the streets.

 We welcome the sentences handed down by the judge. This again displays our ongoing commitment to make Northamptonshire a safer place to live for everyone. We will be relentless in tackling those people who continue to supply drugs in our towns.
