SIX Newport drug dealers have pleaded guilty to trafficking heroin and crack cocaine on the city’s streets after they were arrested following an undercover police operation.

The defendants were snared as part of Gwent’s Police covert Operation Solar which saw officers conduct a series of dawn raids last month.

The six men and the charges they admitted are:

Delroy Lewis, 50, of Clarence Place, four counts of supplying heroin.

He admitted six counts of supplying crack cocaine and one count of attempting to supplying heroin.
