A DRUG dealer has been put be­hind bars after of­fi­cers found heroin and cash at his home.

Stu­art Mark Davies, 36, was sen­tenced to 38 months in prison at Merthyr Crown Court on Fe­bru­ary 7.

Davies, pic­tured, was charged on Oc­to­ber 30 last year after a drugs war­rant was car­ried out at his ad­dress on Wind Street, Aber­dare.

Of­fi­cers re­cov­ered 12 wraps of heroin as well as other ev­i­dence of drugs sup­ply in­clud­ing cash, a tick list and eight mo­bile phones.

He has now been con­victed for pos­ses­sion with in­tent to sup­ply heroin.

Davies ini­tially pleaded not guilty to the of­fence but changed his plea on Fe­bru­ary 7.

Cynon Lo­cal Polic­ing In­spec­tor Rob Blunt said: “This is just one ex­am­ple of proac­tive polic­ing in the Cynon Val­ley.

“Com­mu­nity in­tel­li­gence is vi­tal in our fight against drugs and I would urge any­one with any in­for­ma­tion on drug deal­ing to please tell us or Crimestop­pers on 0800 555 111 what they know.

“This sen­tence should show that we are will­ing to take ac­tion and also act as a de­ter­rent to those who want to sell class A drugs in our com­mu­ni­ties.”
