A WREXHAM man has been jailed after police found cannabis, cash and expensive items in his home for a second time.

Vincent Hannibal Trommelen, of Hampden Way in Plas Madoc, appeared at Mold Crown Court on Thursday for sentencing.

The 50-year-old had previously admitted possession with intent to supply cannabis.

Siôn ap Mihangel, prosecuting, told the court on November 17 last year police executed a search warrant at Trommelen's home.

Entry into the property was forced and the defendant, who was found in bed, directed officers to a black safe - where they discovered a large amount of cannabis in bags.

More cannabis was found elsewhere, along with cash and various expensive items.

These included bikes, mobile phones, gold commemorative coins, an Apple iWatch, commemorative football sets and more.

Drugs paraphernalia was also found in the home.

In total, the value of the drugs found was estimated to be up to £11,350.

Mr ap Mihangel told the court Trommelen had received a suspended sentence one year ago for an "almost identical" offence after police searched the same home in November 2019 and found drugs, cash and evidence of an "expensive lifestyle."

Andrew Green, defending, told the court his client had claimed to have been "pressured" around the time of the offences, but accepted the statement had been met with scepticism by probation officers during the compilation of his pre-sentence report.

"He's not a man without significant health problems and that will affect his experience in custody," Mr Green said.

Judge Timothy Petts told the defendant: "Not for the first time you have been found with considerable amounts of cannabis. "You put forward an account of selling under pressure. The pre-sentence report author was sceptical, as am I.

"Clearly, given the circumstances, it has to be immediate imprisonment."

Trommelen was jailed for two years and two months.
