Need help for script debugging for groovy (Set Priority in context to issue.summary) Edited

We intend on setting The Priority Based on the summary for one of our SD's. For Example exemplarie mail subject "[...](Priority:1)[...]", which creates an issue with the summary [Ticketnumber][...](Priority:1)[...]. 
What we want to do:
1. get the issue.summery content
2. Look up the number after "Priority:"
3. Priority accordingly

Currently used code:

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;

MutableIssue mutableIssue = (MutableIssue) issue;
String subject=issue.summary; //gets the summary
int indexfind; //Help Index to Find "Priority:"
indexfind=subject.indexOf("Priority:"); //finds 'P' of "Priority:"
String Prio=subject.charAt(indexfind+9); // finds the number of summary

switch (Prio){
case "1": mutableIssue.setPriorityId("2"); //set prio Critical
case "2": mutableIssue.setPriorityId("3"); //set prio high
case "3": mutableIssue.setPriorityId("4"); //set Prio Moderate
case "4": mutableIssue.setPriorityId("5"); //set Prio Low
default: mutableIssue.setPriorityId("5"); //sets to default od Low

The Script runner does not throw in exception but the intended use is not given. Couldt you please help me resolve this issue?

def issue = issue as MutableIssue
String subject = issue.summary //gets the summary
int indexfind //Help Index to Find "Priority:"
indexfind = subject.indexOf("Priority:") //finds 'P' of "Priority:"
String Prio = subject.charAt(indexfind+9) // finds the number of summary
switch (Prio)
case "1":
issue.setPriorityId("2") //set prio Critical
case "2":
issue.setPriorityId("3") //set prio high
case "3":
issue.setPriorityId("4") //set Prio Moderate
case "4":
issue.setPriorityId("5") //set Prio Low
issue.setPriorityId("5") //sets to default od Low
ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().updateIssue(ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser(), issue, EventDispatchOption.DO_NOT_DISPATCH, false);
