Kyron Burgess, aged 21, of Hart Gardens, Newport, was jailed for 18 months at the city’s crown court for child abduction.

The offence was committed this April in the Pill area of Newport.

Outside the court, a Gwent Police spokesperson said: “We will strive to keep children safe.

“Where child abduction notices are served and we receive information to state that the offenders are not adhering to them, they will be dealt with effectively and where possible charged with child abduction offences.”

South Wales Argus:

Cocaine dealer Kieron Lewis, aged 21, of Jones Street, Newport, was jailed for two years and eight months at the city’s crown court.

He admitted possessing a class A drug with intent to supply cocaine, dangerous driving, obstructing a police officer, driving whilst over the specified drug limit and possession of criminal property.

The offences were committed in Park Square, Newport, on June 16, 2018.

Outside the court, Police Constable Andrew Owens, Gwent Police’s officer in the case, said: “Lewis was seen by plain clothed police officers openly dealing cocaine from his vehicle in the middle of the day.

“As officers attempted to detain him, he then drove away dangerously, mounting a pavement in an attempt to escape.


“Lewis then felt it acceptable to resist officers and had to be brought under control using police spray

“He was found to be in possession of numerous bags of cocaine ready for onward supply and further bags were located in his home address.

“Gwent Police are committed to tackling drug dealing and will continue to actively police this issue.”

“The two vehicles were also recovered. Patrick O’Driscoll was convicted at Cardiff Crown Court and was given a custodial term of five years in prison.
