A teenager has been banned from Watford after admitting drug supply and knife possession in the town.

Caid King was sentenced over having cannabis, a lock knife, and quantities of crack cocaine and heroin with intent to supply at Bedfordshire Youth Court on January 9.

A community order was made for King, of Thurlow Close, Luton. He must not enter Watford for six months and must participate in an accredited programme for 19 days. He was also given 200 hours of unpaid work to complete over the next 12 months.

Heroin, crack cocaine, cannabis, a knife and a mobile phone were seized and destroyed, while £274.90 was forfeited under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.

The 18-year-old was also ordered to pay a £26 victim services surcharge and £85 to the Crown Prosecution Service in costs.

All offences took place on March 27 last year, in Watford, when King was 17. He had the lock knife in Cassiobury Park.
