Bike man David Davies peddling drugs given suspended sentence

A man peddling drugs on a bike in Wrexham has been given a suspended prison sentence by a crown court judge.

Police found seven small wraps of amphetamine on David Davies, 63, when they stopped him in April believing the bike was stolen.

Then they found nine more wraps during a search at his home in the town.

Mold Crown Court judge Peter Heywood said Davies was "getting a bit old for this" given his age and having been jailed twice before.

"Take advantage of this sentence and sort your life out or continue dealing in drugs and go back to prison," he said.

Davies received an eight month prison sentence suspended for 18 months for possessing amphetamine with intent to supply.

He was placed on supervision and sent on a probation service course called "building skills for recovery".

The judge also placed him on a drug rehabilitation course with regular court reviews.
