A DRUG dealer who owned more than £2,000 worth of cannabis that was tipped over a fence when police raided her Chatteris home was sentenced this week.
Fifty-three-year-old Suzanne Hodgkins, who sold drugs to fund her own habit, was given a 12-month supervision order with the probation service.
She must also attend a 30-day skills for life course, and pay £75 costs, Fenland magistrates announced on Wednesday.
Hodgkins, of Curf Terrace, had admitted possessing both cannabis and cannabis resin with intent to supply.
