Corey Fenton who was caught with drugs, £1k cash and a machete has been jailed.
The 21-year-old was arrested by plain-clothed officers in Heol Trelai, Ely, Cardiff, on the evening of Wednesday, September 13.
Officers from the Organised Crime Team observed Fenton take part in several exchanges while riding an e-bike around the area.
He was detained and found to have numerous wraps of crack cocaine and heroin, a knife and more than £1,000 cash.
Fenton, from Caerau, was arrested and during interview answered ‘no comment’ to all questions.
But he pleaded guilty at his first court appearance and on Friday, September 29 – just over two weeks after his arrest – he was sentenced at Cardiff Crown Court.
For possession with intent to supply crack cocaine & heroin, possession of criminal property (£1,074.52 cash) possession of a bladed article in a public place and driving offences, he was jailed for four years.
