Woman smuggled drugs into prison.

A MUM who tried to smuggle three types of drugs including cocaine and ecstasy into Holme House Prison on New Year's Eve could face jail herself.

Vicky Powell, 34, pleaded guilty to three counts of conveying prohibited articles into the Stockton jail, all on December 31 last year.

She admitted taking cocaine hydrochloride, MDMA, and heroin treatment drug buprenorphine, also known as Subutex, into the prison.

Kelleigh Lodge, defending, said: "She was of previous good character. She is aware of the seriousness of these offences and that these offences do attract a prison sentence."

Judge Deborah Sherwin bailed Powell, of Patterdale Avenue, Stockton, until sentencing on September 24.

She said: "I need a pre-sentence report before proceeding to sentence.

"I make it clear that the fact I'm going to adjourn sentence isn't to be taken as any kind of promise that it won't be a custodial sentence.

"Taking Class A drugs into prison is a serious matter and almost always attracts a custodial sentence."
