Craig Larkin has been sentenced to three years in jail for possession with intent to supply class A. Larkin 43, was found guilty of running a county line operation in Bridgend.
On 23 August officers were passed information that Larkin, who was wanted for an offence, was at an address in Wildmill.
Officers entered the property and Larkin was seen to discard something down the side of the sofa where he was sat. A grip seal bag containing a white rock type substance was located containing crack cocaine.
A total of approximately £3000 in cash, weighing scales, and Larkins mobile phone were all recovered.
Larkins phone provided significant evidence that he was involved in the whole sale amount of Crack Cocaine and Heroin. He was charged a day later. At Cardiff Crown Court on the 15 September, Larkin was sentenced to 40 months imprisonment following an early guilty plea.
Detective Sergeant Lia Jones commented, “Officers in our organised crime team have set up an operation to tackle class A drug supply in the Bridgend area. Craig Larkins arrest and charge is one of a number of criminals we have caught in relation to class A drug supply.
This investigation, and other similar work, was supported by the National County Lines Coordination Centre Surge funding.
