A WREXHAM drug dealer was found with more than £800 worth of heroin when police raided a house in the town, Mold Crown Court heard.

On October 31 police raided a house in St David’s Crescent, Wrexham, said prosecutor James Coutts.

Inside there were four men, three tried to escape but were caught, while Craig White made no attempt to run but sat on a sofa, where police found 8.11 grammes of heroin, with a street value of £811.

White pleaded guilty to possessing drugs with intent to supply. He maintained he was at the house to bag the drugs in order to receive drugs himself.

The court heard that White had been arrested for shoplifting, to pay for his drug habit, in October 2012, and for some inexplicable reason the case had not come before magistrates until November 2013 – after the drugs bust in St David’s Crescent.

As a result of the magistrates appearance, White had been put on a drug rehabilitation requirement (DRR) which had showed every sign of having a positive outcome.

Paul Smith, defending, said until the DRR White had been struggling with his addiction and it was unfortunate he now faced prison.

Recorder Simon Mills said: “You yourself will know what a dreadful scourge drugs are, they kill people and people are subjected to crime to pay for heroin to feed their addiction.

“On the other hand the DRR you were given has started to have an effect and I am impressed by the positive report on you.

“But the reality is this was a serious offence which justifies immediate custody.”

White was sentenced to two years in jail.
