A MAN from Rhyl has been fined after he was found to be in possession of heroin and cannabis.

Nathan Lowry, 35 of East Parade, admitted charges of possession of a class A and class B drug at Llandudno Magistrates’ Court today (April 29).

The court was told that, on April 10, Lowry was found to be in possession of a brown powder at an address on Maes Arthur, Rhyl.

He was arrested, and when searched in custody, a quantity of cannabis was also found on his person.

Analysis of the brown powder showed it to be heroin.

Lowry had five previous convictions for seven offences, including cocaine possession in September 2021, and crack cocaine and heroin possession in October 2022.

In mitigation, Lowry was said to have “brought it (drugs) to the officers’ attention, rather than try to conceal it”.

He was fined £80, and will pay costs to the prosecution of £85, and court costs of £32.

This amounted to a total payment of £197.

The drugs and paraphernalia seized from Lowry were ordered to be forfeited and destroyed.
