A man has pleaded guilty to two charges of dealing cannabis after police officers found drugs worth an estimated £1,200 under his bed.

Appearing at North East Wales Magistrates Court, Alexander Calvert, 22, of Ivy Crescent, Mold, admitted two offences of possession with intent to supply a controlled Class B drug, following a search of his address on June 18, 2018.

Rhian Jackson, prosecuting, said officers executed the warrant at the home Calvert shared with his mother and sister where they found the defendant asleep.

A large quantity of cannabis was found under his bed along with clear ‘snap’ bags and a set of scales with other bags ready for sale.

Calvert was arrested and in interview claimed he was a heavy smoker and the drugs were not for supply but for personal use.

Calvert’s mobile phone was seized and investigations revealed messages relating to supply with the defendant later admitting he sold small amounts ranging from £10-£250 to friends.

District Judge Gwyn Jones said it was clear Calvert, who has no previous offences, had a “significant role” in the supply chain of drugs where he acted as “a go-between” and would deal directly to other users.

Calvert was bailed with the condition he co-operate with probation, to return to Mold Crown Court for sentencing on August 1.
