Leamington Editorial 8th Mar, 2024   0

A KEY supplier of drugs in Leamington has been jailed.

Hazel Wright, 57, of no fixed abode was sentenced to six years and two months in prison at Warwick Crown Court after pleading guilty to two counts each of being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine and being concerned in the supply of heroin.

Marissa Quinn, 54, of St Nicholas Road, Radford Semele was given a 23-month prison sentence suspended for 20 months after pleading guilty to being concerned in the supply of heroin. She pleaded not guilty to being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine and this charge was left to lie on file.

On June 28 2023, plain clothed detectives carrying out targeted drug patrols stopped a car in Haddon Road, Leamington. Wright was in the passenger seat in possession of heroin and crack cocaine and was arrested.




When officers searched her, another two rocks of crack cocaine dropped out of her trouser leg.

Wright was arrested again on August 31 when detectives raided a house in Briar Close, Leamington where she was living at the time.


Quinn was also in the house where officers located her trying to flush drugs down the toilet.

Detectives searched the house and seized heroin and crack cocaine.

Across both incidents officers seized more than £5,000 worth of drugs.

Detective Constable G Dubad from Leamington Serious Organised and Acquisitive Crime Team said: “We’re pleased to have secured a lengthy sentence for a key player in the supply of drugs in Leamington.

“Drug supply is a blight on our communities, and we continue to be relentless in tackling it.”
