Teenage drug dealer sentenced

A man from Plumstead who was found by police in possession of ten wraps of crack cocaine has been jailed for over two years.

Jack Doherty, aged 18, of Sovereign House, Europe Road, SE18 appeared at Woolwich Crown Court where he was sentenced to two years and two months imprisonment.

Doherty had pleaded guilty to possession of ten wraps (1.17 grams) of crack cocaine with intent to supply on Thursday 11 August at Bromley Magistrates’ Court.

At 9:30am on Wednesday, 10 August, detectives from the Greenwich Borough Gangs Unit were pro-actively patrolling in a drug supply hotspot in Kingsman Parade, Woolwich when Doherty was seen to be dealing drugs. He was stopped and searched, and found in possession of ten wraps of crack cocaine.

Doherty was charged on Thursday, 11 August, with possession of crack cocaine with intent to supply.

Detective Constable Gavin Russell from the Greenwich Gangs Unit said: “I am pleased with the sentenced imposed. Jack Doherty (pictured below) chose to engage in drug supply and now has to face the consequences of his actions and serve a term of imprisonment. I want the community to see that we are doing everything we can to rid the streets of this anti-social behaviour in Greenwich.”
