CCTV showed him with another man in an alleyway and the other man was heard to say: “Oh my god, it’s the f***ing police bruv. I’ve got a Taser on me. You go down there and hide it.”

The defendant would not name the other man, who has still not been identified. He initially said he carried a stun gun “for protection” in Barry, as he felt threatened.

He later told officers he had found it at a supermarket that day and put it in his bag because he thought it was a torch.

Prosecutors said the black stun gun, disguised as a torch, was 17cm long and marked “police”, also containing Chinese writing.

The defendant accepted he had been taking cocaine with friends and stated someone must have slipped some into his pocket, as he did not know it was there.

Mr Fryer said he received a youth caution in January 2017 for possessing cannabis, but did not have any previous convictions.

Susan Ferrier, defending, said her client was supported by his family in court and drew the judge’s attention to “glowing” references.

She said the defendant had not received counselling since his best friend was killed in a road traffic collision and his group of friends fell apart.

Ms Ferrier added: “He fell into bad company. At that time he did not have any other friends and he tried to fit in.”

The court heard Iannucci started using cannabis and then got involved in drug dealing. She said he has been in custody for four months and is now drug-free.

She said he was “deeply sorry”.

Iannucci was sent to a young offender institution for five years and four months.

He must serve half of that in custody before he can be released on licence. The judge made an order for the drugs and paraphernalia to be destroyed.

Speaking after the hearing, Detective Inspector Sarah Trigg said Iannucci was deliberately targeting children and young people in the Barry area.

She said: "Thankfully the teenager who was hospitalised from taking drugs supplied by the defendant has made a full recovery.

"Our message is clear – the supply of illegal drugs will not be tolerated and every effort will be taken to bring to justice those responsible for blighting our communities with drugs such as these.”

DI Trigg added: “Class A drugs are, by their very nature, dangerous and unpredictable due to their varying potency and purity. If you have Donkey Kong in your possession, please don't consume it.

"Drugs can have a devastating impact and we would urge people to talk to loved ones they believe may be taking them."

She said anyone who believes they may have had an adverse reaction, or anyone who becomes ill as a result of taking drugs, should seek medical attention as a matter or urgency.
