Scarborough cocaine and cannabis dealer sentenced to two years 10 months at York Crown Court
Gino Terence Cammish-Flemming was sentenced to two years and 10 months in a Young Offender Institution at York Crown Court today (Tuesday, February 6).
The 19-year-old from St Johns Road, Scarborough, had previously pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply cocaine and cannabis, and possession of a bladed article in a public place.
The charges relate to proactive police activity on the afternoon of Tuesday, September 19 last year.
Working on information that Cammish-Flemming was dealing drugs in the Scarborough area, Operation Expedite officers spotted him near Hackness Road and he was located inside The Rosette pub.
As they approached him, Cammish-Flemming stood up and attempted to pull a 12-inch knife from the back of his trousers.
The officers quickly apprehended him, secured the knife and placed him under arrest.
Cammish-Flemming was found to be in possession of 63 wraps of cocaine, multiple bags of cannabis and £800 in cash.
Detective Constable Darrel Temple, of the Operation Expedite team in Scarborough, said: “To have his liberty taken away after being caught dealing Class A and Class B drugs, and being in possession of a large knife, will hopefully serve as massive wake-up call for this young man.
“This is a chance for him to turn his life around and step away from the harm and misery associated with drug-related crime.
“If he or other drug dealers think they can continue to operate freely in our area, we will use all available powers to take them off our streets.”
