Wrexham man jailed after drugs and shotguns found in shipping container

|News, Drug offences

A man has been jailed at Mold Crown Court for possessing shotguns without a licence and possession of class A drugs with intent to supply.

Robert Jarvis, 33, had several mobile phones and a large quantity of cash when police searched his home address earlier this year.

After an extensive investigation, police found that Jarvis was accessing a large shipping container in the local area. Inside it were a number of shotguns and drugs with a street value of around £200,000.

Andrew Warman of the CPS said: “The amount and value of the items seized would seem to indicate that Jarvis was substantially involved in the illegal drugs trade.

“The CPS presented strong evidence to the court, including evidence from drugs and firearms experts, which led to these guilty pleas.”

The sentence hearing took place on 7 May 2019 where Jarvis was sentenced to a total of ten years and four months’ imprisonment.
