A woman has been sentenced to more than two years in prison for bringing drugs into Cumbria.
Sara Louise Murphy, 27, of Ferry Road, Wirral, was sentenced to 2.5 years in prison for being in possession of a quantity of Class A drugs with intent to supply.
She was sentenced at Preston Crown Court on Friday (July 8th) after pleading guilty at an earlier hearing.
Murphy’s vehicle was stopped by officers on the A590 near to Dalton-in-Furness on March 21st 2016. Murphy was found to have approximately £4,800 (street value) worth of heroin and crack cocaine hidden in her bra, which she was transporting from Merseyside to Barrow.
PC Matt Simpson said: “All too often people are persuaded to transport drugs from large cities into Cumbria. These can have a damaging and long-lasting effect on our communities and we continuously work to penetrate the supply of drugs onto our streets and to put the suppliers behind bars. The prison sentence handed down to Murphy shows that we will not tolerate drug suppliers in our county.”
