A violent young woman with a ‘frightening record’ allowed her home to be used for supplying drugs, a court heard.
Claire Waldron, 24, also admitted at Burnley Crown Court to affray after attacking a woman in a pub in Blackburn.
The court heard that more than £6,000 of cannabis was found at Waldron’s home on Knowlmere Street in Accrington.
Natalia Cornwall, prosecuting, told the court that police executed a search warrant in October 2012 and found more than 100 bags of cannabis worth around £1,800 hidden in a Celebrations chocolate tub, a tin on the mantelpiece and two other coloured tubs.
Officers also found between £3,000 and £4,500 worth of cannabis in the loft. However, Waldron denied knowing anything about the drugs in the loft or cash and drugs equipment which was also seized.
Miss Cornwall told the court how in a separate incident Waldron got into a dispute with a group of women at a pub in Accrington in December 2012.
CCTV from the pub showed Waldron involved in a ‘heated conversation’ before kicking one of the women on the floor and striking her on the back of the head, she said.
Waldron, who now lives at Spring Street in Accrington, pleaded guilty to affray and allowing her property to be used for the supply of drugs.
The mum-of-two has spent six months in custody on remand at Styal prison.
Judge Beverley Lunt handed Waldron a 12-month prison sentence this week but said she has already served the custody limit.
She told Waldron: “Your record is nothing short of frightening. You really are a violent young woman and have been for a long period.”
Bunty Batra, defending Waldron, said she had already served the equivalent of a one-year jail term and ‘felt powerless’ about letting her place be used to supply drugs.
