Man jailed after admitting intent to supply drugs
A MAN who admitted possessing cocaine with intent to supply has been jailed, South Wales Police has said.
David Walker, 28, from Pant Glas in Pencoed was sentenced to five and a half years at Cardiff Crown Court.
A police spokesman said officers had discovered cocaine and cash at his home after executing a search warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act on July 28.
He said it was the third drugs-related conviction for Walker in five years and an investigation into his assets is now underway under the Proceeds of Crime Act.
Detective Inspector Dean Taylor said: “The distribution of cocaine impacts heavily on all forms of crime and causes misery among families.
“David Walker has failed to learn his lessons after two previous convictions for supplying the drug – it’s is a case of three strikes and out and he will now spend time in prison to reflect on his way of life.
“An investigation is now underway into his assets and finances to ensure that he does not benefit in any way from his criminality.”
