A TEENAGER has been given a second chance after being caught in possession of heroin and cocaine.

Jordan Whalley, of Broomfield Road, Reading, admitted to two counts of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs at Reading Crown Court.

At 3.15pm on March 31 this year, the 19-year-old was found with drugs on Katesgrove Lane.

He was charged on July 19 and later received a two-year sentence, which was suspended for two years.

He was told to carry out unpaid work for 180 hours and pay a victim surcharge of £140.

Police constable Tom Kennedy, from the Reading Stronghold Team, said: “Tackling drug dealing in the Reading area is a priority for Thames Valley Police.

“We will work hard to tackle individuals involved in the organised supply of Class A drugs.

“Please contact police or Crimestoppers if you have any knowledge of drug dealing in the area.”
