Man jailed af­ter ad­mit­ting in­tent to sup­ply drugs

Glamorgan Gazette - - News -

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.”
