A drug dealer found with crack cocaine and weighing scales in a fast-food restaurant has been jailed.
Officers became suspicious of Jac Verallo who was riding around Leckwith on a pushbike while talking on a mobile phone.
Believing he was involved in drug dealing, a police officer followed Verallo into McDonald’s near the Cardiff City Stadium.
Verallo, 24, tried to run away but was arrested.
He was found with crack cocaine, cocaine, three mobile phones, around £1k in cash and digital weighing scales.
A search of his address resulted in finding a large amount of grip seal bags and a high valued electric scooter.
Verallo, from Fairwater, pleaded guilty to two counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs and, on Wednesday, October 4, was sentenced at Cardiff Crown Court to two years and four months in prison.
