Blackburn mum paid for habit by dealing

First published in News

A MOTHER of three admitted dealing amphetamine to friends to pay for her own habit.

Blackburn magistrates heard police who raided the home of Heron Amy Wright found 10 bags of the drug and two ‘tick lists’ detailing her customers.

Wright, 33, of Hereford Road, Blackburn, pleaded guilty to possessing amphetamine with intent to supply. She was made subject to community supervision for 12 months with a six-month drug rehabilitation require-ment.

Carl Gaffney, prosecuting, said when police executed a drugs search warrant Wright immediately shown where the amphetamine was kept. She later told police she had bought wraps of amphetamine worth £60, and would keep four for herself and sell the other six to fund her own addiction.

“It is not dealing on the streets but it is dealing for financial gain,” said Mr Gaffney.

Andrew Church-Taylor, defending, said the supply was only to a small group of the defendant’s friends.
