Man jailed for assault and possession of Class A drugs and knives

David McCauley

A Cardiff man has been sentenced to 40 months in prison for possession with intent to supply Class A drugs, assault, and possession of a bladed article in a public place.

Nineteen-year-old David McCauley, from Hiles Road, Ely, was found in possession of a large ‘zombie knife’ (pictured), which has been seized. He pleaded guilty in March this year.

PC Jon Grenville-Roberts said:

“This conviction stems from a good bit of work by PC Clarke from Ely Response.

“Even one instance of knife crime is one too many, and tackling the harm that knife crime causes is an absolute priority for South Wales Police.

“However, we are also determined to address the root causes of knife crime, and are working closely with the Wales Violence Prevention Unit and other partners – including education services and trading standards – as part of a public health approach to the issue of knife crime, to prevent people from carrying knives in the first place.”

If you have suspicions that someone may be carrying a knife, or involved in drugs, you can contact police on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
