A PREGNANT Crosshill woman who admitted being involved in heroin dealing from her home has avoided a jail sentence.

Kayleigh Webster, 29, of Castle Avenue, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

She previously admitted that on April 25, she was concerned in the supply of diamorphine.

Depute fiscal Sarah Lumsden said police had been given information and were granted a warrant to search Webster’s home.

During the search, heroin was found with a street value of between £1,800 and £3,150. There was also £985 in cash found in the house.

After being arrested, Webster gave a ‘no comment’ interview to police.

Defence solicitor Alexander Flett said his client’s partner had been arrested and subsequently jailed for drugs offences in April. It was when he was taken into custody these offences occurred.

“She was left with the drugs which were to be collected by somebody else. She knew about this,” he added. “She was left holding the baby so to speak.

“The drugs were recovered from a bedroom and she knew they were there. She’s extremely remorseful.”

Sheriff Charles MacNair said the offence would normally result in a jail term but he felt there were special circumstances in this case. He imposed a community payback order with three years’ supervision and an eight-month restriction of liberty order.

He also ordered the forfeiture of the £985 seized in the raid.
