Man charged with possessing drugs, knuckle duster and hydrogen peroxide in Newmarket playing field
A teenager is set to appear in crown court accused of possessing drugs, a knuckle duster and a bottle of acid in a Newmarket playing field.
Yesterday Suffolk Police received a report of suspected drug dealing in the George Lambton playing fields at about 5.15pm. When officers arrived at the scene, which is behind the town's police station, they saw a man flee.
Soreen Prince, of Cobblers Court in Mildenhall, was chased by two officers and was caught a short while later. Items including cash, a bottle of a clear liquid which police have said contained hydrogen peroxide, and a bag containing various drug wraps were found in a nearby bush.
Prince was taken to Bury St Edmunds police investigation centre where he was charged with possession of an offensive weapon, possession of drugs with intent to supply, and possession of a noxious substance.
Today the 19 year old appeared before Suffolk Magistrates' Court and was remanded to appear before Ipswich Crown Court on May 18.
