Some things you just can’t make up… Oh Oxford, I love you sometimes… and how on earth the Editor managed to steer his team from the inevitable headline gag I dont know.
This from today’s Oxford Mail.
A GRANDMOTHER was caught with her trousers down trying to conceal drugs between her legs.
Police raided Janice East’s house and found the 54-year-old in her bedroom trying to get rid of the evidence.
The grandmother-of-two, from Rose Hill had six wraps of heroin and five wraps of crack cocaine when officers swooped on October 5.
East was sentenced at Oxford Crown Court on Monday having earlier admitted two counts of possessing a Class A drug and breaching a suspended sentence.
Prosecutor Nikki Duncan said: “Police executed a warrant at her home address. They forced the door and went upstairs where they found her with her trousers pulled down. She was trying to conceal the drugs between her legs.”
The offence put East in breach of a four-month prison term, suspended for a year, which had been dished out by magistrates after almost identical drugs offences in May.
She has 31 previous convictions dating back to 1974.
Lucy Ffrench, defending, said East has been drug-free since November.
Judge Patrick Eccles jailed her for a total of 18 weeks.
