A RECKLESS drug dealer who failed to stop for police will be sentenced at the crown court.

Jay Wylde, of no fixed abode, was approached by officers on November 28 after he was seen acting suspiciously.

The 35-year-old reversed into a stationary car that was parked nearby, before he fled the scene.

He was detained by officers and police found a quantity of drugs nearby.

Sergeant John Chen, based at Reading police station, said: “I am pleased that Wilde pleaded guilty to these offences.

“We will not tolerate drug dealing in our communities and we will also look to prevent those who carry out this type of crime.

“Wylde’s actions when officers attempted to stop him were extremely reckless, so I am pleased that he has been brought to justice.”

Wylde admitted to possession with intent to supply heroin and dangerous driving at Reading Magistrates' Court on November 29.

He will be sentenced at the crown court at a date which is yet to be confirmed.
