Salisbury Wooldridge Custody Shot 070218

A woman found in possession of class A drugs in Salisbury has been jailed for three years and two months.

Skye Wooldridge, aged 21, of Hereford Drive, Taunton, was arrested in Lower Street, Salisbury on 19 October after she was found in possession of crack cocaine.

She was taken to the Royal United Hospital in Bath as a medical precaution but escaped as she was leaving the emergency department. 

An appeal regarding her whereabouts was released asking for information and she was later located in Thames Valley area. 

She was subsequently charged with escaping from lawful custody, as well as breaching a suspended sentence order, possession of class A drugs, breach of a Community Behaviour Order and resisting a constable. 

On January 16, she appeared at Plymouth Crown Court and was sentenced to a total of 38 months imprisonment.

PC Joe Shanklin said: "Wooldridge has been uncooperative since her arrest - she escaped from officers at the RUH and was later located in the Thames Valley area several days later.

"I am satisfied with the sentence handed out - removing class A drugs from Salisbury's streets.

"If you suspect drug activity to be taking place in your area, we'd like to hear from you. All information will be dealt with confidentially."

Call 101 to report drug activity.
