Waylett 'In Hiding From Drugs Gangs'

Shamed HARRY POTTER star JAMIE WAYLETT is in hiding from violent gangs over drugs debts, according to a U.K. report.
The 20 year old, who is known to millions as Hogwarts bully Vincent Crabbe in the wizard franchise, was arrested last year (09) after police pulled over his car and caught him in possession of several bags of cannabis.
His London home was subsequently raided by cops, who discovered the star was growing 10 cannabis plants. He was charged with illegal production and was handed 120 hours community service.
But his troubles didn't stop there - he is living in constant fear he will be beaten up or kidnapped over thousands of dollars he owes to gangsters, according to Britain's The Sun newspaper.
The publication claims Waylett moved out of his family's home in Kilburn, north-west London and has been hiding out in a homeless hostel for the past two months.
A source tells the tabloid, "He owes thousands to drug dealers. He's borrowed from loads of people. Now they want his money. They'd probably beat him up or kidnap him if they got him - but they don't know where he is.
"Jamie has to stay at the hostel five nights a week or he loses his room. He does go back to see friends sometimes, but he has problems in Kilburn."
Waylett's character has been written out of the series' final installment, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, following the incidents.
