Woman sold class A drugs near primary

A WOMAN was caught dealing class A drugs near a primary school in East Lothian.

Adelle Mackie, 34, was stopped by police after they received information that she was selling diamorphine near Wallyford Primary School.

They found 19.4 grammes of the drug and 166.60 in cash in her handbag. A search of her home led to the discovery of scales covered in traces of diamorphine. Yesterday at Edinburgh Sheriff Court, Mackie, from Musselburgh, pleaded guilty to supplying diamorphine between February 19 and April 13 this year.

Depute fiscal Pauline Shade told the court that another search of Mackie's home was carried out two months later.

On April 13, police discovered two wraps stuffed into her jeans pockets. A total of 12.5 grammes - worth up to 1260 - was found in the wraps.

Sheriff Gordon Liddle deferred sentence on Mackie until next month.
