A drug dealer from Liverpool accused of having heroin and crack cocaine worth £1,200 at Bangor was jailed for three years.

Connor Vibrams, 21, of Bellini Close, Seaforth, had already served nearly nine months in prison for an almost identical offence.

Prosecuting barrister Anna Price told Caernarfon crown court that last April police had been in Convent Lane, Bangor, favoured by drug dealers.

“Police received information suggesting Liverpool-based drug dealers would be going to the area,” she said.

Miss Price said Vibrams’s mobile phone rang constantly and bags of drugs were in his boxer shorts.

Recorder Wyn Lloyd Jones ordered the seizure of £658 found by police. He said the defendant had an “incredibly long bad record.” He told Vibrams :”Controlled drugs are a serious problem in our society. They destroy lives and families, you are an example of that.”

Myles Wilson, defending, said Vibrams was supplying on behalf of a dealer above him. He was off drugs now.

The defendant admitted possessing drugs with intent to supply.
