Terrie Renwick, aged 28, has been jailed for four-and-a half years after pleading guilty to two counts of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs and possession of a Taser. In July this year, police officers raided Renwick’s home in Warrington, Cheshire and found her flushing drugs in a toilet. One of the attending officers, formerly a plumber, recovered 220 wraps of heroin and crack cocaine from an external pipe. A Taser was also found at the property, along with phones revealing messages regarding drug dealing. The court heard that Renwick was trying to “raise funds” for her honeymoon.

Bronislav Bucek, aged 18, has been handed a suspended twelve-month prison sentence after pleading guilty to burglary and possession of an imitation firearm.

The firearm, which was not discharged, was found to be a BB gun. Bucek went on to burgle a house in the area, leaving his fingerprints at the scene. He was also ordered to abide by a three-month curfew between 8am and 6pm and to complete 40 days of a rehabilitation activity requirement.
