Police officers proceeded to search Forbes’ flat and found letters addressed to the defendant. 

They also discovered crack cocaine and scales with traces of a white powder.

When officers left Forbes’ flat, they came across a Ford Fiesta in Middle Road linked to the Clos John Charles address.

Officers signaled for the suspicious vehicle to pull over, but it drove off and mounted a pavement before crashing into an unmarked police vehicle and flipping onto its roof.

Rees then climbed out of a window and ran off, but officers chased and caught up with the suspect and found him in possession of seven deals of crack cocaine.

Both officers in the car suffered whiplash injuries and the female officer’s son is worried about her going to work, the court heard.

Mr Scapens said it was the prosecution case that Forbes and Rees were operating together in the supply of cocaine. 

Lathan James Evans Rees, of Clos John Charles, Cwmbwrla, Swansea, admitted possession of crack cocaine with intent to supply, dangerous driving, and driving while disqualified. 

Dylan Ashley Forbes, of St Clears Place, Swansea, admitted being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine and to an unrelated assault occasioning actual bodily harm (ABH).
