A Caernarfon woman who went into drug dealing to help her partner has been jailed for 31 months.
A judge told Kimberley Evans she acted out of ‘misguided loyalty’ to her boyfriend after he ran up a big debt.
Evans (33) pleaded guilty to possessing heroin with intent to supply after around thirty wraps were discovered during a raid at a house in Bro Seiont in November 2017.
Around £600 worth of the drug was found, along with paraphernalia and over £200 in cash. Prosecutors told Caernarfon Crown Court that bags were spotted being thrown out of the house from an upstairs window.
Evans gave no comment when she was initially interviewed, but later blamed friends for leaving the drugs at her house.
The defence said Evans was not a drug user but her boyfriend was. He had been threatened after running up a ‘huge debt’ and was told he would have to deal some drugs.
She agreed to do so out of ”totally misguided loyalty”, but did it for her boyfriend instead of benefiting herself.
Evans’ barrister added she had no previous drug-related offences on her record and argued for a reduced sentence because of the delay in charges being brought against her.
Judge Huw Rees ordered the drugs and paraphernalia to be destroyed and the cash seized during the raid to be destroyed.
