A woman has been jailed after she tried to enter a music festival with 200 ecstasy pills hidden in her vagina.
Kiera Wilson’s plan to smuggle drugs into Creamfields was foiled when she was caught on August 27 last year.
A sniffer dog approached the 25-year-old and alerted its handler to the fact she was carrying illegal substances.
Chester Crown Court heard how a ‘large pouch’ was later found in her vagina which contained 192 pills of MDMA, also known as ecstasy.
It was estimated the drugs would have been worth around £1, 922 inside the festival.
Rosemary Proctor, prosecuting, said Wilson told officers that there were pills concealed in her vagina, but said she didn’t know anything about their type or quantity.
Officers also took her mobile phone which showed text conversations between August 25 and 26 with another person, where they discussed obtaining tickets for the festival.
The texts also show that she would take ‘gear’ inside for a dealer, effectively acting as a courier and smuggling the drugs inside to give to the third party.
Matthew Hopkins, defending, said his client had pleaded guilty at the first opportunity, adding that she didn’t have any previous convictions.
During sentencing, recorder Simon Parrington told Wilson: ‘The site is plastered with notices and bins there to dispose of drugs, yet you continued on, and like so many you were caught.
‘What you did was utterly stupid, and I hope you have learnt a sharp lesson.’
Wilson of Castles Green in Sunderland,was sentenced to two years in prison, suspended for 18 months.
She must also undertake 150 hours of unpaid work and pay £468 covering court costs and a statutory victim surcharge.
Creamfields was again in the headlines earlier this month when an NHS worker who took cocaine into the festival was jailed for three years.
Courtney Healy, 21, had 14 wraps of the Class A drug in her bag.
Judge Steven Everett described her behaviour as ‘evil’ as he sentenced her to three years.
He said: ‘It shows she is completely enveloped in the drug culture and is very blasé about it.’
And in 2018, a gang of drug dealers who attempted to smuggle illegal drugs into Creamsfields using Kinder Eggs and condoms were jailed for a combined 31 years.
The group of 13 men and one woman were carrying ketamine, ecstasy and cocaine.
When searched, a Kinder Egg found inside a woman’s vagina had £3,430 worth of cocaine and 58 ecstasy tablets worth £580.
