Two men have appeared in court after being charged by police following drugs raids in Caerphilly County Borough.
Five properties were raided in Trethomas, Bedwas and Abertridwr on Thursday (July 9) as part of Gwent Police’s Operation Jigsaw, which targets serious and organised crime.
Jedd Wiegold, 31, of Trethomas, was charged with conspiring to supply class A drug cocaine and conspiring to produce class B drug amphetamine.
He was also charged with two counts of possessing extreme pornographic images, and one count of possession of a knife blade/sharp pointed article in a public place.
Meanwhile, Michael Pipe, 28, from Bedwas was charged with conspiring to supply cocaine, as well as conspiring to supply amphetamine.
Both men appeared at Newport Magistrate’s Court on Friday morning (July 10). They will next appear in court on August 7.
Last week, drug raids were carried out across south Wales as part of the UK-wide Operation Venetic, which saw three men from Caerphilly County Borough charged.
