A WOMAN has been sentenced after hundreds of pounds worth of cannabis was found inside her Carlisle kitchen.
Police acting on intelligence executed a warrant at Kimberley Marie Hall’s Yewdale Road address on August 18 of 2017.
“In the kitchen at the rear of a refrigerator they found a bag of cannabis bush which weighed about an ounce,” prosecutor William Donnelly told Carlisle Crown Court. “In a kitchen drawer they found 30 street deals of cannabis in the usual snap-bags – again about an ounce of the drug in total.”
The haul was potentially worth £600.
A set of digital scales was also located, while 35-year-old Hall was seen by police to use her mobile phone and her fingerprints were found on cannabis packaging.
Hall admitted being concerned in the supply of the class B drug.
The court heard Hall was a full-time carer for her wheelchair-bound mother, and that she had “never had any problems with drugs whatsoever”.
Paul Tweddle, defending, said: “She is a lady effectively of good character who has been intimidated and cajoled to do this.”
Concluding she had been “put upon”, Judge Nicholas Barker imposed a 12-month community order comprising a rehabilitation requirement.
