Sussex drug dealer who used Uplands Airbnb as Swansea base jailed

A drug dealer from Sussex, who used an Airbnb property in Uplands as his base, has been jailed.

Nathan Young, aged 22, was sentenced to four years and six months in prison for the supply of Class A drugs.

South Wales Police Detective Inspector Marc Gardner said: “The team worked really hard to make sure these drugs were taken out of circulation and it is very satisfying to see justice served. I hope this result gives reassurance to the local community that drug dealing will not be tolerated in Swansea.

“The drugs were no doubt destined for towns and villages in the Swansea Neath Port Talbot area as part of a County Lines drug-dealing network. We fully understand the misery that drugs inflict and we will continue to do all we can to disrupt local drugs trade.

“South Wales Police will continue to work with our colleagues in other forces, and other agencies, to fight the harm brought to our communities by illegal drugs.

“It is important though to recognise the vital role the public play in helping us to tackle the issue. If you have any information about drug dealing in your local please don’t hesitate to let us know. Even a small bit of information could be the missing part of the jigsaw that means we can make an arrest or carry out a warrant.”

If you have information about drugs in your area you can contact the police online, by emailing PublicServiceCentre@south-wales.police.uk or by calling 101.
