on

swansea crown courtEIGHT people from west Wales appeared before a judge in one of the largest alleged cocaine conspiracies ever seen at Swansea crown court on Tuesday (July 15).

Nineteen people in total stand charged with conspiring together to supply cocaine between January 1, 2012, and March 23, 2014.  A 20th person is also alleged to have been involved.

Those appearing today included Greg McKenzie, aged 28, from Awelon, Blaenwaun, Whitland,

Thomas Salmon, aged 33, of Llanmill House, Llanmill in Narberth, David Evans, aged 42, from Crud y Wawr in St Clears, ‘Cockney’ John Fitzgerald, 44, of Priory Lodge Drive, Milford Haven, Marcus Randall, aged 43, of Heol Becca, Carmarthen, Daniel Gila, aged 26, from City Road, Haverfordwest, Emanuel Handford, aged 23, of Glannant Road, Carmarthen and Louise Thornton, aged 27,  from Whitemill in Lampeter Velfrey.

McKenzie, Fitzgerald, Salmon and Evans entered pleas of guilty, as did two men from Merseyside and one from Swansea.

They were remanded in custody and will be sentenced after proceedings against the other defendants have been completed.

Hanford also admitted the charge.  He was granted bail and Judge Keith Thomas agreed a probation officer should prepare a report into his background in time for the sentencing hearing.

The remaining defendants will be asked to enter pleas at a case management hearing on August 7 and were granted bail meanwhile.

Robin Rouch, prosecuting, said it was alleged that some of the defendants had been involved in the supply of cocaine while others had allowed their bank accounts to be used for the transfer of drugs money.

DRIVERS in and around the Maenclochog area are still recovering today after a hardened vandal spray-painted yellow penises along a stretch of road near Morvil.
The road, just off the B4313, was targeted with graffiti because of the number of potholes scattered along it’s length.
Locals have dubbed the cock-sure artist as ‘Wanksy’ and have discovered that whoever drew the penises also wrote ‘Follow the yellow d### road’.
Some of the penises have been drawn around more sizeable potholes, but simply pointing disapprovingly at the smaller ones.
If you want to report a pothole, the chosen method is still via the Pembrokeshire County Council website.
