A former Police Community Support Officer, originally from Powys, was caught smuggling drugs into Indonesia, and has been jailed for 14 years.

Andrea Waldeck from Talgarth was found guilty of smuggling and also fined £100,000.

The 43-year-old, who was once a PCSO in Gloucestershire, was arrested in April last year at her hotel room in Surabaya.

Authorities found 52 ounces of crystal meth in her underwear worth more than £3000.

Waldeck is facing 16 years in an Indonesian prison and a fine of around £100,000.

The former PCSO smuggled the drugs into Indonesia's second-largest city.

Waldeck, who worked for Gloucestershire Police until February 2012, could have faced the death penalty.
