Pair caught with £3k of cannabis

Llanelli Star - - Letters -

A LLANELLI pair were caught with cannabis with a street value of more than £3,000 when po­lice searched a house and its garage.

Luke Cam­den Chat­field and Eleri Sian Evans were stopped by po­lice while driv­ing through Bynea on Oc­to­ber 23 last year.

Cannabis was found and a fur­ther search of a house saw al­most 500 grams of the drug seized by po­lice.

Chat­field, aged 30, of Cae Ter­race, and Evans, aged 31, of Do­lau Court, pleaded guilty to pos­sess­ing 497.81 grams of cannabis with in­tent to sup­ply, when they ap­peared at Llanelli Mag­is­trates’ Court on Thurs­day.

Chat­field also pleaded guilty to a charge of pro­duc­ing three cannabis plants at the prop­erty.

Pros­e­cu­tor Cather­ine Miles said: “Weigh­ing scales were found, a grinder, three cannabis plants and equip­ment to cul­ti­vate grow­ing, in­clud­ing lights.”

She added: “The value of the drugs was found to be £3,129.67.

“This is not suitable to be dealt with at the mag­is­trates’ court as the sen­tenc­ing pow­ers are in­suf­fi­cient due to the amount of cannabis and also the com­mer­cial sup­ply scale of it. It is classed as street deal­ing.”

The mag­is­trates’ bench granted Chat­field and Evans un­con­di­tional bail un­til Jan­uary 2 when the case will be heard at Swansea Crown Court.
