A woman who told police she was “only doing her job” when she was caught supplying heroin has been jailed for three years.
Lisa Park, 41, was sentenced at Dundee Sheriff Court after admitting the crime.
Park was caught with 16.52g of the Class A drug, with a value of £1,650, at her home in Adamson Court.
She also had a tick list, seven mobile phones and £650 cash.
Fiscal depute Sue Ruta said Park was unemployed when police raided her home on April 20.
The fiscal said: “The accused was traced in the living room and seen to hide a Kinder egg in her bra and drop another Kinder egg behind her.”
The Kinder eggs contained heroin with a maximum street value of £1,650.
As officers took her to Dundee police headquarters, she said: “I’m only doing my job, supplying to folk.”
Her mobile phones were analysed and drug-related messages were recovered.
Solicitor Mike Short, defending, told the court Park began abusing heroin when her husband died and that she is now in the grip of addiction.
Park, a prisoner at Edinburgh, admitted being concerned in the supply of heroin, a Class A drug, between February 11 last year and April 20. Sheriff Alastair Brown said: “You know as well as anyone that this stuff causes misery.”
