A PARTY girl who posted glamorous selfies of herself online was exposed as a drugs mule — after police tracked her to a service station and found drugs worth nearly £350,000 stashed in her boot.

Rhiannon Ferguson lived a double life, one as a fun-loving blonde who enjoyed the high life, and another as a high level drugs courier, transporting thousands of pounds worth of cocaine between Liverpool and East Lancashire.

Officers received an anonymous tip-off in February this year that the 25-year-old from Helmshore was dealing drugs and put an undercover surveillance team on her.

They finally busted her two months later at Charnock Richard services on the M6 with three kilos of cocaine in her hire car.

It is believed to be the biggest 'in-transit' drugs arrest in Lancashire with police estimating the haul as having a street value of £343,000.

The 'selfie queen' posted a number glamorous pictures of herself on social media, some showing her made up ready to hit the town and others in designer outfits enjoying glitzy nights out with friends.

But the police mugshot taken after her arrest painted a very different picture of Ferguson. This was her second persona — the drugs dealer — wearing a black hoodie and no make-up.

Last night she was behind bars after a judge jailed her for seven years.

Detectives said Ferguson's actions would have brought misery to the streets of East Lancashire.

Preston Crown Court heard earlier how she had travelled to the Walton area of Liverpool on April 27 to collect the drugs from co-defendant Christopher Harrison.

Ferguson, of Chelston Drive, Helmshore, was seen meeting Harrison in the street where he supplied her with the cocaine.

Her car was then followed tracked to motorway services and she was arrested in possession of the drugs.

Ferguson pleaded guilty to possession of a Class A drug with intent to supply.

Harrison, 41, of Moss Lane, Liverpool, pleaded guilty to a supplying a Class A drug.

Judge Heather Lloyd jailed them each for seven years and ordered the forfeiture and destruction order for the drugs.

Speaking after the hearing, Detective Inspector Vinny De Curtis said: “When Ferguson was stopped she was in possession of a large quantity of cocaine supplied to her by Harrison and which would undoubtedly have brought misery to the streets of Lancashire and which have now been taken out of circulation.

“I hope this sentence will send a message that the supply and distribution of drugs will not be tolerated in Lancashire, and we will continue to target, and deal with proportionately and robustly, those who put our communities at risk in this way.”
