The bottom fell out of Kadeem Phillips’ world when he was nabbed drug dealing in Margate...quite literally!
The 18-year-old drug addict was spotted cycling in Dane Park in April by police officers who chased and caught him.
Phillips then handed over two wraps of heroin, asked if he had a secret stash... and admitted he had.
It was then that officers took him to a property in Rosedale Road where he was staying and strip searched him ...and revealed a cocaine and heroin stashed in his bottom!
But the teenager had to be taken to Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Hospital before all 63 packages were eventually retrieved.
Phillips, who admitted two charges of possessing Class A drugs with intent to supply, claimed he was selling them to pay off a £200 cannabis debt to dealers.
His barrister Ramya Nagesh told Canterbury Crown Court that Phillips was just “a foot soldier” and had not targeted vulnerable youngsters in the park.
But the judge, Recorder Peter Morgan, told him he had done his dealing for profit and sent him to a Young Offenders' Institution for two-and-a-half years.
In January this year, police officers found Phillips with cannabis and issued an official caution.
The judge told him: “You have been very foolish...you should have taken the hint when you were given a chance.”
