A drugs gang who were concerned in the supply of cocaine and heroin in Pontardawe have been jailed for over 17 years at Swansea Crown Court yesterday.

South Wales Police’s proactive policing team worked with response officers, a specialist dog unit and roads policing officers to bring all three members before the courts.

  • Angharad Bullock, aged 43, of Pontardawe – was convicted of possession of criminal property, being concerned in the supply of cocaine, allowing premises to be used for drug trafficking and possession of cocaine and was sentenced to a total of six years six months imprisonment.
  • Adeniyi Adesina, aged 37 of no fixed abode, was convicted of being concerned in supply cocaine & heroin and possession with intent to supply cocaine and heroin and was sentenced to a total of six years nine months imprisonment.
  • Ibrahim Nyei, aged 27 of Birmingham was convicted of two counts of possession with intent to supply cocaine and heroin and was sentenced to a total of four years imprisonment.

Sergeant Richard George said: “Based on intelligence we executed a warrant in June last year in James Street. While Adesina was arrested at the scene, Nyie made off in a car and was soon stopped and arrested and Bullock was later arrested in Neath town centre. Thanks to further information from members of the public drugs were also recovered from a footpath near the property.

“Tackling drugs in our community really is a team effort and that includes members of our communities, I would urge anyone who has concerns about drug dealing to tell us what they know or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.”
