A teenager caught with drugs in Suffolk has avoided an immediate prison sentence.
Mohammed Abadid, 19, appeared at Ipswich Crown Court on Friday to be sentenced for two drug offences.
The court heard that Abadid was arrested on May 9, 2020, after officers saw him acting suspiciously.
A subsequent search revealed drugs "secreted about his person", Ipswich Crown Court heard.
He was taken to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre and later charged with two charges of possession with intent to supply class A drugs (cocaine and heroin).
Abadid, of Lincoln Avenue, Twickenham, previously pleaded guilty to both charges.
Recorder Jeremy Benson QC sentenced Abadid to 16 months' imprisonment, suspended for two years, and ordered him to complete 150 hours of unpaid work.
