Joshua Seivwright

A teenage drug dealer with “a shocking criminal record for someone so young” is behind bars for the first time after being caught with crack cocaine.

Joshua Seivwright, 18, gave himself up to police days after he fled from a house in the Pill area of Newport before they could arrest him.

The defendant pleaded guilty to possession of crack cocaine with intent to supply and his latest conviction put him in breach of a suspended sentence.

That was for attacking a Newport Bus driver and causing £800 worth of damage to his vehicle earlier this year.

Seivwright was sent to a young offender institution for 33 months.
