A woman who smuggled “Spice” into a Suffolk prison has been jailed for six months.
Before Ipswich Crown Court was Tamara Roberts, 35, of Linford Road, London, who denied conveying synthetic cannabis, known as “Spice”, into HMP Highpoint at Stradishall on February 3 last year.
She was convicted by a jury after a three day trial earlier this year and sentence was adjourned until today (Thursday) for a pre-sentence report.
During the trial the court heard that Roberts was seen acting suspiciously in the visiting area at the prison and was then seen to remove a package containing drugs from her waistband as she was taken away to be searched.
During the trial Roberts claimed the package was passed to her by the prisoner she was visiting.
