Lathan James Evans Rees (25) from Cwmbwrla was driving his car when he noticed plain clothed officers and drove off at speed, hitting another police car resulting in Rees’ car being flipped on its roof.

Forbes and Rees have been sentenced to three years and four months each for being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.

Detective Inspector Marc Gardner from South Wales Police said: “We will always be relentless in our efforts to tackle drug supply and all forms of organised criminality which affects the communities that we serve.

“Swansea Neath Port Talbot is, and always will be, a hostile place for criminals to operate.”

South Wales Police are urging people to tell them if they suspect drug dealing is taking place or that a young person or vulnerable adult may have been targeted by an organised group. You don’t have to be certain, just concerned.
