A woman from Powys has been jailed for 14 years in Indonesia after being found guilty of smuggling drugs into the country. Andrea Waldeck from Talgarth near Brecon had been working as a Police Community Support Officer in Gloucestershire before she was arrested. Richard Morgan reports.
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.
The A479 is partially blocked because of an accident between the B4560 (Talgarth) and Cwmdu.
