A WOMAN is set to be evicted from her home after letting county line drug dealers sell heroin and crack cocaine from it.

Leeanne Edwards, aged 43, of Teme Crescent, Droitwich has lost her home and must leave by Christmas Eve.

The eviction comes after she admitted being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine and heroin at Worcester Crown Court on November 21.

The court heard Edwards was arrested in June along with two men from the Birmingham area, who were also arrested for the same offence.

One of them was found inside her property with a large quantity of crack cocaine and heroin and the other one was arrested a short distance away from the address.

Edwards was sentenced to time already served and given a community sentence.

However, police from Droitwich Safer Neighbour team and Fortis Housing worked together to secure the eviction, and she must leave the home by Christmas Eve.

PC Richard Rees said “We work in partnership with Housing associations.

"It is pleasing to see that Fortis Housing are as keen as us to prevent the supply of Class A drugs coming into the town by taking enforcement action against those who facilitate drug dealing from their addresses.”

“Edwards’ neighbours have been the victim of anti-social behaviour as a result of drug dealing.

"I hope this incident shows that action will be taken and this serves as a warning to people intending to use their houses for criminality.”

“If you suspect drug dealing let us know.”
