Dangerous driving and drugs charges for Kenilworth teenager

Leamington Editorial 11th Dec, 2023   0

DRUGS and a knife were reportedly found in the car of a driver who failed to stop for police in Kenilworth.

Jack Unsworth, from Moat Lane, has been charged with possession with intent to supply cocaine and alprazolam, and dangerous driving.

The 19-year-old has also been charged with possession of an offensive weapon in a public place, driving without insurance, driving not in accordance with a license, and acquisition, use, or possession of criminal property.

This follows an incident on the evening of Wednesday December 6 in which a car reportedly failed to stop for officers.




The car – a Peugeot 408 GT – then allegedly drove in a dangerous manner before being involved in a collision on the A46 near Leaf Lane.

Officers made an arrest and carried out a search of the vehicle, reportedly discovering a large blade, over £3,000 in cash, and a quantity of controlled drugs.


Unsworth was due to appear at Coventry Magistrates Court for his first hearing on Friday (December 8).
