A MAN from Liverpool has been jailed for supplying drugs in Bangor.

Kane Murphy, 28, appeared before Caernarfon Crown Court on Friday, December 15.

He received a sentence of four and a half year's imprisonment for possession with intent to supply Class A drugs in Bangor on August 2016.

Inspector Owain Llewellyn at Bangor Police Station said: “Murphy’s arrest was part of Operation Rattle, a pre-planned operation specifically targeting the supply of drugs by Merseyside based organised crime groups into Gwynedd and Môn.

"Those few in our communities who supply class A controlled drugs must realise there is a consequence to their actions and they will go to prison.

"I welcome the sentence and hope it reassures the public that North Wales Police will take a robust stand against those who supply controlled drugs. There is No Hiding Place.”

“In line with the force’s Operation Scorpion we are fully committed to the investigation of serious and organised crime and eradicating it from our communities.

"I’d reiterate that anyone with information regarding the production and supply of controlled drugs or anyone they believe is involved in organised crime should contact North Wales Police.
