A teenager who came to Hatfield from Enfield with heroin and crack was sentenced to 18 months' custody on Friday (January 14th).

Kemar Walker, 18, was in Fiat Punto car that police spotted in the town centre on 16 March last year, St Albans crown court heard on Friday.

Prosecutor Edward Lewis said that one of the other men in the car was seen to throw something into the footwell.

It was recovered and 40 wraps of drugs with a street value of £800 were found inside.

Walker of Cosmopolitan Court, Main Avenue, Enfield pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of heroin and crack cocaine. He had previous convictions for theft and arson.

Defending, William Maley, said Walker had accompanied a drug dealer to Hatfield because the man had wanted to get into the Hatfield drug market.  He said Jamaican-born Walker was only 17 at the time of the offence.

Sentencing him Judge John Plumstead said: "You were asked to find someone a way of selling Class A drugs in Hatfield to add to the problem Hatfield has. People from outside fuel the flames of addiction."
