A MORRISONS shop worker who was found with £11,000 of cocaine at her Newquay home also kept the drug ‘speed’ in her work locker, a court heard.
Kay Flexon, 35, of St Pirans Road, was jailed for four years at Truro Crown Court yesterday (Tues) after admitting dealing class A Cocaine and keeping amphetamines at work.
The court heard the mother of five still held down a job at Morrisons and a reference from the supermarket was handed up to the judge as Miss Flexon was sentenced.
Mr Michael Brabin prosecuting told the court: “In a locker at her place of work, which was searched, at Morrisons – secreted there were found to be two packets containing amphetamine, nearly 3.9 grams.
“There were similar amounts of cannabis resin also found in her home, but they were insignificant compared to the quantity of cocaine – which was the principal offence.”
Earlier the court heard police searched Flexons home on May 21st last year.
Sentencing Flexon, who was given a three year sentence in 2001 for dealing ecstasy in a club, Judge Christopher Elwen said the £11,000 of cocaine found at the defendants home constituted a “serious” offence beside which the other drugs, amphetamine found in her Morrisons locker and cannabis at home, “paled in comparison”.
He told Flexon: “It is absolutely plain that you were dealing. The usual paraphernalia, including digital scales, were found, as were a couple of mobile phones.”
Kay Flexon pleaded guilty to two counts of posession of a class a drug with intent to supply and four lesser counts relating to posessing drugs.
She was jailed for four years in total, of which she was told she would serve half.
Her defence counsel Joss Ticehurst said she dealt to support a habit.
