A postmistress in West Wales was known as ‘Dealer Diedre’ due to her selling cocaine on the side from her post office.
Diedre Jenkins, 45, sold the illegal class A drug to regular and local customers at her post office in Parcllyn, rural west Wales.
Jenkins even allowed some customers to have the drugs on credit – one customer even had £3,000 ‘on tick.’
Dealer Diedre was reported to police after she allegedly refused to give someone drugs unless paid upfront. It is believed that the customer wasn’t pleased with the service.
Prosecutor Jim Davis said: ‘Police executed a search warrant following receipt of information from local residents.’
Mr. Davis told Swansea Crown Court police found three wraps of cocaine in her handbag and eight grams hidden in a cupboard in her bedroom during a raid in December.
Mr. Davis said: ‘It appeared that Jenkins had become fed up of giving customers cocaine “on tick” and had told some to go to other dealers.’
Jenkins pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine with intent to supply.
Jenkins was handed a two year suspended sentence and ordered to complete a rehabilitation course.
