A 46-year-old woman has been jailed for 48 months for supplying crack cocaine and heroin in Runcorn.

On Tuesday 21 September she appeared at Liverpool Crown Court and was convicted of being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine and heroin and possession with intent to supply crack cocaine and heroin.
Following a search of the address officers linked Dawn Bennett, of Stonelea in Runcorn, to the supply of crack cocaine and heroin after her belongings were found in the property. She was arrested at an address on Whitchurch Way in Runcorn and charged.

Alan McHugh, of 11 Bedford Street, Liverpool was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply class A drugs and possession of cannabis following a warrant at an address on Bedford Road in Liverpool on 20 December 2019.
When questioned by officers McHugh admitted to helping to ‘bag’ up the drugs in order to ‘speed up the process of buying them’. He was sentenced to 40 months behind bars after being found guilty of being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine and heroin at an earlier hearing.
He was also given a four month sentence for possession of cannabis which will be served concurrently.
PC Chris Nicholls, of Runcorn’s Beat Team, said “These three individuals were part of an organised crime group that supplied drugs within the town. They preyed on vulnerable drug users in order to make a profit from their supply.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of my colleagues who assisted in this investigation and to reassure the community that although these individuals are now in prison our fight against drugs and county lines criminal activity goes on.
“I would therefore appeal to the local community to come forward if they believe they have seen or heard this type of criminality and to report it to Cheshire Constabulary via the website or 101.
