Teenager found guilty of street drug dealing

A teenager has been locked up after pleading guilty to two charges of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply.

Leonard Badwal was selling heroin and cocaine to pay back debts owed by his drug addict brother.

Officers were called to the family home on Airedale Road, Undercliffe, after Badwal’s father had rang the police to say his eldest son was stealing items from the house.

Bradford Crown Court heard police found the father in a drunken state while he accused his eldest son of stealing and that Badwal was selling drugs.

After searching the 18-year-olds bedroom, police found two wraps of cocaine, three wraps of heroin, and a further three bags of heroin.

Badwal was sentenced to 28 months in a young offender’s institution.
