A man wanted by Camberwell Green Magistrates’ Court for dangerous driving offences has now been jailed after being stopped and searched by officers who found drugs hidden in his genitals.
Reginald Goodhead, aged 26, from Clifford Drive in Brixton was given three years and four months in prison on Monday, January 8, at Inner London Crown Court for drug offences including intent to supply cocaine, and possession of criminal cash.
According to the Met, in the early hours of November 24, 2018, officers in Coldharbour ward saw Goodhead parked on Heritage Close with his lights on an engine idling. They approached him after realising the registered keepers, address and insurance details were ‘inconsistent’.
Officers described Goodhead as ‘very evasive’ and said he only gave his first name, but checks revealed he was wanted on warrant by Camberwell Green Magistrates’ Court for dangerous driving, failing to stop, driving while uninsured, and driving without due care and attention.
In custody at Brixton Police Station, drugs were found hidden in his genitals, with evidence on his phones also referencing the supply.
Goodhead pleaded guilty to the drug offences at Inner London Crown Court on December 21, last year.
In his absence on June 13, 2018, Camberwell Magistrates’ Court ordered him to pay fines totalling £430 and disqualified him from driving for six months.
