A teenage supermarket worker has appeared in court in connection with drug-dealing after cocaine and MDMA was found in his locker at Sainsbury’s. Max Dixon, 19, of Leeds Road, Otley was before a judge at Leeds Crown Court today for sentencing after previously pleading guilty to two counts of possession of a class A drug with intent to supply, one count of possession of a Class B drug with intent to supply and one count of possession of cannabis. The court heard that on August 3 last year, a co-worker at the store at Bondgate in Otley turned up to work smelling of cannabis and his locker was searched by staff but nothing was found. Dixon’s locker was also searched as the two were known to be associates. Staff discovered what was later confirmed to be five separate packets of cocaine, eight sealed bags of ketamine and five packages of MDMA in a jacket pocket and police were called. The cannabis was found during a later search of his home address. Dixon told police during interview that he was looking after the drugs for a friend in return for £150 but later admitted they were being supplied by him.
