Two people have pleaded not guilty to stealing over £20,000 worth of jewellery from a Denbigh pub which has lost its licence.
Damien Conway-Williams (27) from Ruthin is charged with theft from the residential quarters of The Kings on Vale Street at some point between July and September last year. He was in a relationship with the daughter of the pub’s owner, Alyn Jones.
Jessica Rowlands (20) from Denbigh stands accused of trying to sell on some of the stolen jewellery at a pawn shop in Wrexham last October. She’s been charged with handling stolen goods and fraud.
Both suspects were bailed by Prestatyn magistrates and will appear before Mold Crown Court on Friday 11th March.
The Kings was closed when its licence was revoked by councillors for serving underage drinkers and allegedly becoming a known troublespot following a series of incidents, including a mass brawl. A bid to regain the pub’s licence was withdrawn last month.
