Teen drug dealer busted at play park suffered psychotic episodes due to cannabis use

A teenage drug dealer was caught after police officers noticed his friend smoking weed next to a children’s play area.

Harry Greer, 18, was found with £530 of cannabis stuffed into a JD Sports bag at Poltair Park in St Austell on October 25 last year.

Greer, now of Exeter but formerly of St Austell, appeared at Truro Crown Court on Wednesday (May 15) to be sentenced after admitting one charge of possession with intent to supply a Class B drug.

Prosecuting the case, Deni Matthews described how on October 25 at about 12.50pm two plain clothes police officers were on patrol and saw three men sitting to the side of a children’s play area that was being used by families.
