Richard Lewis Williams, only recently released from prison over a clash with anti-racist protestors, was jailed again for two years after police discovered a cannabis farm
An Anglesey man has been jailed over firearms and drugs offences after police uncovered a cannabis farm.
They found a growing operation, including numerous plants and dangerously overloaded multi-socket adaptors.
Officers from the ongoing Operation Scorpion organised crime crackdown welcomed the two-year prison term given to Richard Lewis Williams, 32, from Bryngwran.
Williams, has only recently been released from a prison term for his part in violent disorder in Kent, where members of his Infidels group clashed with anti-racism protesters.
In 2015, Williams and others were involved in a demonstration in Llangefni, where they protested against mass immigration and the alleged ‘Islamification of Britain’.
Following the sentencing of Williams for drugs and firearms offences, PC David Heptonstall, from Llangefni Police Station, said: “North Wales Police welcome the sentence today at Caernarfon Crown Court. Lewis was a member of an Organised Crime Group in Anglesey and his incarceration will I’m sure bring a sense of relief to many in the local community.
“His sentence is also a message considering a others a life of crime, that we will continue to effectively and robustly target drug dealers. There will be no hiding place on the Island.
“I would urge the public to continue to identify the individuals, movements, locations and details of any drug supplying activity in their area. Working together in our community we can effectively target those who cause the most harm and help keep our communities safe.
“We are determined to effectively target, disrupt and dismantle organised crime groups which operate in North Wales to keep this a safe place to live, work and visit”.
Operation Scorpion has taken down a number of high profile targets in recent years, including major drugs rackets in the North West Wales area.
