A man was exposed to police as a drug dealer by his partner after officers were called to an angry row.

When officers resolved the issue and left the property in Prestatyn, Wales, on March 25 last year Jason Lee Terry's partner shouted "AND he's a drug dealer!".

Cops then searched the property and found a stash of cannabis in tubs in the kitchen worth almost £5,000.

Terry, 46, was jailed for six months at Mold Crown Court after he pleaded guilty to possessing cannabis with intent to supply, the Daily Post reports.

Prosecutor James Coutts said officers looked in the kitchen and found 481 grammes of cannabis worth £4,800, two lots of digital scales, snap bags and £1,000 in cash.

Police arrested the defendant and he told officers the drugs were for his own use.

They also seized two mobile phones and messages proved he had been selling the drugs.

Simon Killeen, defending, said there had been "some instability" in the relationship last March.

But the couple, who have four children, have now made up.

Mr Killeen described Terry's partner as the "breadwinner" in the relationship and she has an upcoming interview for a supermarket job.

If she gets the job, Terry could look after the children if spared jail.

But the judge told Terry that he had pleaded guilty to possessing cannabis with intent to supply.

He added: "It's apparent that this was hardly a one-off occasion. It's apparent from the mobile phones that you have been doing it for some time.

"This is deliberate and long-term conduct. You need to be taught a short, sharp lesson that this sort of conduct is not acceptable."

He jailed him for six months and said he would serve less than half in prison.

He said: "You will despise it and I hope it means you will never do it again."

He also ordered Terry to pay a £122 victim surcharge.
