A woman from Atwell Street, Liverpool, has been jailed for drug offences following a stop check by plain clothed officers.
Georgia O’Brien appeared at Liverpool Crown Court on Friday 22 September where she was sentenced to two years in prison after earlier pleading guilty to the offences.
The case began at around 7.50pm on Wednesday 16 August when plain clothed officers on patrol identified O’Brien during a drug deal on Halton View Road, Widnes.
The 24-year-old attempted to evade police on foot but was quickly detained and arrested.
O’Brien was found in possession of a knuckle duster, 53 wraps of crack cocaine, 30 wraps of heroin, and a large quantity of cash.
She was later charged with two counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs (heroin, crack cocaine), possession of criminal property, and possession of an offensive weapon in a public place.
Police Constable Chris Nicholls of Widnes Proactive CID said: “O’Brien is responsible for a transporting and supplying large amounts of Class A drugs from Liverpool to the streets of Widnes and in doing so, has brought misery to local residents in the area.
“Illegal drugs can clearly have a devastating impact on drug users but also on the local communities that surround them.
“I welcome the custodial sentence that has been handed to O’Brien and I hope this serves as a reminder to anyone intent on committing crime in Cheshire that we are watching, and you will be brought to justice.”
