A DRUG dealer who had more than 30 wraps of heroin and cocaine in her possession was caught selling in a public toilet in Bournemouth.

Michelle Gedney, 45, was jailed for four years at Bournemouth Crown Court on February 13 after admitting possessing class A drugs with intent to supply.

She was caught at around 5.25pm on February 10 after officers in an unmarked police car spotted several suspected drug users walking to and from a public toilet block in the area of East Overcliff Drive.

Officers went inside and heard Gedney, of no fixed abode, talking to another woman in a cubicle, saying that another person who just left did not usually ‘score’ from her.

Gedney was searched and was found to be in possession of more than 30 wraps of what were found to be heroin and cocaine. She was subsequently arrested.

As well as being charged in relation to the Bournemouth incident, Gedney was wanted in connection with possession with intent to supply class A drug offences in London from May 2019 and was charged with these as well.

She admitted a total of four charges at court.

PC Stuart Grant, of the Bournemouth South Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “We recognise the detrimental impact the supply of class A drugs and related activity has on our local communities.

“We are committed to tackling this issue and I hope this case demonstrates how through our proactive work and patrols we are identifying and taking action against those involved in the supply of drugs.

“We are also reliant on intelligence from members of the public and I would urge anyone with information about drug related activity to contact us at www.dorset.police.uk, via email 101@dorset.pnn.police.uk or by calling 101.”
