A DRUG dealer who tried to dispose of her stash of drugs in the toilet of her Fearnhead home has been jailed.

When police executed a warrant at her Vulcan Close property on July 16, Terrie Renwick was found with her hand down the toilet.

The 28-year-old, who was due to get married this month, was detained and officers began to search the U-bend of the toilet.

When nothing was found, officers turned their attention to an external waste pipe and followed it to a grid outside the property.

The officer opened the grid and found what they believed to be heroin and cocaine.

Further examination revealed that there was 120 wraps of cocaine and 121 wraps of heroin with a street value of £2,410.

A taser, phone and quantity of cash were also discovered during the raid.

Renwick, who has a history of drug offences, was subsequently arrested and charged with possession with intent to supply class A drugs and possession of a taser.

She pleaded guilty and was sentenced to four years imprisonment by Judge Louise Brandon, after appearing via video link from HMP Styal at Liverpool Crown Court on Thursday.

Police constable Andrew Dolan said: “I welcome the sentence which has been handed down from the courts to Renwick.

“This result means that we have prevented heroin and cocaine reaching the streets of Warrington, and I hope that it will send a strong message to those who think they get away with any aspect of illegal drug activity in our community.

“We will continue to do everything we can to remove illegal drugs from our streets, and I would ask the public to please contact us with any concerns about drugs in their neighbourhood as we will act on all information provided to us.”

David Keane, police and crime commissioner for Cheshire, added: “I would like to thank the officers involved in this case for taking another drug dealer off the streets and securing a fantastic result from the courts.

“By removing these drugs from the street, we are preventing them from getting into the wrong hands and causing misery across Cheshire.

“I would urge everyone who has been affected by illegal drug activity to report it to Cheshire Police on 101.”
