Drummond, of Three Mile Cross, Berks, is said to have driven to his victim’s house using a map feature on the social media app.

Fiona Elder, prosecuting, told Truro Crown Court: “There are two allegations that he travelled from his home to Cornwall and raped her in her bedroom at her parents’ home.

“You may think the dangers of social media are highlighted in this case where a child finds herself in a situation that they do not understand and they do not want.

“You may think, having heard the evidence in this case, that this is what happened on this particular occasion.

“He had come to her house using Snapchat mapping.

“There is no dispute that she did go through a sexual experience.

“As you will hear, Mr Drummond admits having sexual intercourse with her on these occasions.”

‘TOLD GIRL TO LIE’

Drummond allegedly told the girl to tell the police that she had said told him she was 17 years old.

But the girl is alleged to have told investigators that he knew the girl’s age the first time they met, prosecutors say.

Ms Elder added: “Pushed for details, she said sex had occurred and she did not want it.”

The court heard that the girl allegedly asked Drummond to stop but he ignored her.

Evidence of Drummond’s DNA was allegedly found in the girl’s bedroom, jurors heard.

Ms Elder also claimed the girl received £30 from a bank account in the name of P Drummond.

The court heard Drummond has worked as a specialist anti-terrorism police officer with the Ministry of Defence since 2006.


Drummond faces three charges of rape and three alternative charges of sexual activity with a child.

Four of the charges relate to October 26 of 2017 while two date to November 17, 2017.

He has denied all the charges and the trial continues.
