A schoolboy from Queen’s Park who dealt class A drugs on a housing estate in Pimlico has been sentenced today.
The 14-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was given a two-year rehabilitation order, a two-year supervision order and a six-month curfew.
He has also been banned from living in the Pimlico area.
The teenager was arrested in June after officers stormed the Churchill Gardens estate following a five-month operation targeting suspected drug dealers.
A total of 25 drug dealers were arrested as part of Operation Accomack, which was launched in response to concerns from residents on the estate about the sale of cannabis, heroin, crack cocaine and MDMA.
