Anglesey couple jailed after drugs found in freezer


Staff reporter (NW Chronicle)

AN ANGLESEY couple were both jailed for 20 months yesterday after drugs worth nearly £5,000 were found in their freezer.

Robert Owen, aged 39, and Mary Owen, aged 37, of Bro Tudur in Llangefni, admitted possessing drugs with intent to supply.

Caernarfon crown court heard amphetamine worth more than £3,900 and methylamphetamine valued at more than £1,000 were found when police searched their home last December.

They said they were looking after the drugs for someone else.

He also admitted having cannabis and she pleaded guilty to possessing cocaine.

Barrister Matthew Curtis, for Robert Owen, said he received disability living allowance and saw a drugs counsellor.

He was remorseful. Mr Curtis added that the defendants had thought the drugs were amphetamine only, not Class A drugs.

Simon Rogers, defending Mary Owen, said she was signed off as unfit for work because of drinking and depression.

She was a former heroin addict.

Judge Merfyn Hughes QC told the defendants: ”Both of you were acting as custodians for a drug dealer in the community.”
