Caught and in court
A Newport man’s starting a 40-month sentence for drug offences.
23-year-old Callum Welch pleaded guilty to three offences at Newport Crown Court on 22 September:
Detective Constable Abbie Hackney said:
“We found, through text messages taken from mobile phones, that Welch was organising the sale of cocaine in Newport and Cwmbra
“During a search of his home officers found £7,500 cash inside baby feed and coffee tubs, along with mobile phones, further demonstrating his heavy involvement in drug trafficking.
“Tackling illegal drug activity remains a priority for us and we’ll continue our efforts to prosecute those involved.”
