Colwyn Bay - Drug dealer jailed after vicious Colwyn Bay attack on couple
Drug dealer jailed after vicious Colwyn Bay attack on couple
A COUPLE were subjected to a horrendous ordeal when four masked men got into their home and threatened them.
One of them had a hammer which he used to attack the occupant of the flat in Penrhyn Road, Colwyn Bay.
But the attackers’ car was spotted by CCTV operators. Police stopped it and arrested James Perry, 38, of Union Bank Road in Widnes, but the other three were never caught.
Perry was initially charged with aggravated burglary and supplying heroin and cocaine to the victim, Mold Crown Court heard.
But the charge of aggravated burglary was dropped to one of assault.
He was sentenced to four years for supplying class “A” drugs, plus 40 weeks consecutive for the assault.
The Judge, Mr Recorder Charles Fox, said Perry had supplied heroin and cocaine to the victim and his girlfriend, who were “clean” at the time. “Having done that you hounded them for the money from the very day that you supplied them, until the day that you and three masked men smashed your way into their house,” he said.
One of them, not the defendant, had attacked the victim with a hammer.
“This was a completely shocking state of affairs. It was a horrendous ordeal for the couple,” he said.
“Although you did not wield the hammer you were instrumental in this assault,” he said.
Perry denied it was anything to do with drugs money, but the judge said he’d orchestrated the whole thing. Perry had previoulsy been jailed for six and a half years for supplying drugs, in 2004.
Meirion Lewis-Jones, prosecuting, said Perry was not alleged to have used the hammer. The man who did had not used full force blows. The victim suffered a black eye, and lacerations to the head and arm.
Simon Rogers, defending, said the supply of drugs had not been for onward supply to others. The assault was more of intimidation rather than intending to cause serious harm.
