Judge again warns of meow meow dangers
A JUDGE has again warned of the apparent dangers of meow meow as he sentenced two dealers of the drug.
Judge Keith Thomas told Charlie Jenkins and Robert Rees: "It is far more serious than other class B drugs and it's widely available in this area, particularly in nightclubs. People who take it commit offences and quickly become addicted to it and causes them and the community in which they live problems."
The two men had blamed each other for being involved in supplying the drug.
The pair had been stopped by police as they drove through Port Talbot at 4.30am on December 23.
Officers said they were about to search them when Rees handed over meow meow from his pockets and his sock. Officers then found a carrier bag in the car containing seven further bags of the drug, weighing scales and empty bags. Further drugs were found in Rees's home at Sandfields Road in Port Talbot.
They also found a list which the prosecution told Swansea Crown Court was a dealer's list of those they had supplied to.
Jenkins, aged 21, formerly from Port Talbot but now of Queen Street in Pontypridd, was searched and his phone was seized and checked.
Jenkins said he had been told to sell the drugs by Rees, aged 38, and that he made a profit for himself by selling it for £15 a gram rather than the £10 he was told to.
Rees blamed Jenkins, saying he had given him the drugs found on him and had told him to snap the Sim card from his phone when police arrived.
Both later admitted possession of the drug with intent and Jenkins also admitted being concerned in the supply of it. They both received terms of eight months which were suspended for two years.
