A Northwich woman who plagued her local community has been jailed for drugs offences.
Jade Grannell appeared at Chester Crown Court on Monday 13 September where she was jailed for 16 months.
The 32-year-old had earlier pleaded guilty to two counts of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs (heroin and cocaine).
Her sentencing comes just seven months after a closure order was granted for her former home Binney Road, Northwich, which had been plagued with anti-social behaviour and drugs related offences.
Grannell, now of Old Orchard Place, Crewe, was arrested by officers on Wednesday 25 November 2020 when she was stopped by officers on Royle Street and found in possession class A drugs.
Following her arrest, a search was conducted at her former home on Binney Road where officers discovered further class A drugs.
During questioning Grannell admitted to officers that she had been dealing drugs on behalf or a county lines drugs gang from Liverpool.
Sergeant Dave Christmas said: “I welcome the sentence handed to Grannell and I hope that it provides reassurance to the residents who were impacted by her behaviour.
“This case was part of our ongoing crackdown on county lines drug dealing and while Grannell is now behind bars and we will continue to crackdown on county lines dealers coming into our town.”
Chief Inspector Gary Smith, of Northwich Local Policing Unit, said: “Illegal drugs have a hugely detrimental impact and we are committed to doing all we can to remove those involved in the supply of such drugs from our communities.
“Information from the public is vital in this this fight and I urge anyone with any information about suspected drug related activity in their community to get in touch.
“You will be listened to and we will investigate the matter.”
