Here are a few things we have discovered along the way.

1. The Leasehold Owner of the Vietnamese run nail bar known as Sophia Nails at 20 College Street, is convicted criminal Tring Thanh Tran.

She was convicted on 27th September 2019 for her part in 15 cannabis factories, the investigation led to the detection of more than 30 further factories and storage facilities across Wales.

I could not find any mention of Tring Thanh Tran when the charges were first made in the newspapers.
