“She then referred them to his drug dealing equipment and paraphernalia and they were around the house she shared.”

Landa had only been involved in the drug trade for around a week and he was described as a being a “street level supplier”.

The defendant, of Is Fryn, Rhymney, pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of cocaine and being concerned in the supply of cannabis.

Landa had previous convictions for robbery and handling stolen goods.

The judge was invited to take into account the long delay in the case coming before the court.

John Ryan, mitigating, also asked for his client to be given the appropriate credit for his guilty pleas.

Judge Nicola Saffman jailed the defendant for 24 months, but suspended the sentence for 24 months.

Landa was made the subject of an electronically monitored curfew for six months between 9pm and 6am and he must complete a 15-day rehabilitation activity requirement.

He was also ordered to pay £500 towards prosecution costs and a £156 victim surcharge.
