A Kendal teenager has today (January 21st) been sentenced at Carlisle Crown court to 30 months imprisonment.
Mark Grayshon, 18, of Helsington, Kendal pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply crack cocaine and possession with intent to supply heroin.
He was arrested on the 19th of December 2018 on Rydal Road, Kendal, and was found to be in possession of 13 wraps of crack cocaine and 5 wraps of heroin. These were hidden inside a kinder egg secreted on his person.
DC Tom Pearman of the South Lakes Intelligence Unit said: “Grayshon’s sentence today sends a clear message to those considering becoming involved in county line drug dealing; Kendal is not a soft touch, we will catch you, you will go to jail. It is not worth it.
“Targeting those who operate in South Lakes, intending to selling Class A drugs remains a priority for us and officer’s ongoing hard work shows that Cumbria is an unattractive place for those involved in county line drug dealing. I would like to thank all of the officers involved in this case, whose hard work has resulted in this offender being taken off of the streets.”
