Nathan Jeavons, 22, of Colwyn Bay, admitted possessing drugs with intent to supply after police seized cocaine, cannabis, ecstasy, ketamine and another controlled drug which the prosecution alleged were worth £25,000.

Caernarfon crown court heard his partner Lauren Fisher, 21, had texted him a message saying:

I’m sick of you. You choose drugs and money over spending time with your partner and baby.

Prosecutor Richard Edwards said Jeavons replied that the supplying was “like an addiction” because it was “easy money.”

Despite asking him to stop, Fisher still helped her boyfriend.

She received a ten months suspended jail term after pleading guilty to being concerned in the supply of cannabis, and programme and rehabilitation requirements were imposed.

Mr Edwards said the couple had a flat in Cwrt Elim, Colwyn Bay.

Last July police searched their home and that of Jeavons’s grandmother in the town’s Erskine Road.

The prosecutor said her grandson indicated the drugs found were nothing to do with her.

Jeavons told police he had got a “good deal” on drugs in Liverpool and bought them to pay a drug debt at Colwyn Bay.

You have been together three or four years.

You have a child together and certainly until your arrest last July you were both regularly taking cannabis and both regularly involved in the sale of cannabis.

I accept Mr Jeavons is by far the most involved.

– Judge David Hale
