By Staff

A teenager from East London has been jailed for more than three years after being caught with heroin, crack cocaine, and a police baton at Euston station. Emmauel Arosomade, aged 19, of Papermill Place, Walthamstow, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply Class A drugs and possession of an offensive weapon.

He was sentenced at Inner London Crown Court on Thursday 30 30, and jailed for 40 months. He was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £228.

The court heard how on Thursday, May 2, Arosomade was spotted by British Transport Police (BTP) County Lines Taskforce officers at Euston Station trying to get on a train to Northampton.

When stopped by plain clothes officers, they decided to search him. They found Arosomade was carrying a metal police baton in his jacket pocket and a lump of drugs wrapped in cling film in his tracksuit bottoms.

The drugs were later found to be crack cocaine and heroin, thought to be worth £1,100 when sold on the street.

Investigating officer T/DC Daniel Burke said: “Attempting to transport hefty hauls of class A drugs in plain sight on the railway is not a good idea. We have highly trained specialist officers working across the country as part of our County Lines Taskforce – we are watching you and you will be apprehended and face the consequences.”
