A woman who smuggled two chocolate Kinder Eggs containing drugs into HMP Berwyn in Wrexham, has been jailed.

Mold Crown Court heard how Chelsea Bennion took a total of 99 tablets into the prison during a visit.

The court heard the tablets had a total prison value of £4,950 - £50 a tablet.

Bennion, 28, of Galaxy Grove in Brynteg, Wrexham, admitted takingbuprenorphine tablets into the prison in October 2018 and was jailed for 30 weeks.

At the time she had been on post sentence supervision after beingreleased from prison for supplying cannabis.

Prosecuting barrister Anna Pope said the defendant visited prisoner RyanWolfe.

The drugs were passed to him under a coat as they sat next to each other.

The two eggs - one containing 50 tablets and the other 49 - werediscovered hidden in the leg of his trousers.

Wolfe was serving six years at HMP Berwyn for assault withintent to rob and received an additional eight months for the drugsoffences at an earlier hearing.

Defending barrister Matthew Curtis said Bennion had written aletter to the court in which she had expressed genuine remorse.

Judge Rhys Rowlands said the offence was far too serious for the sentence to be suspended.
