A 49-year-old woman from Royston has been found guilty of drug offences.
Pearl Paton, from Blake Close, was given an 18-month sentence suspended for 24 months at Cambridge Crown Court after being found guilty of possession of a class B drug with intent to supply.
She was ordered to pay £500 in costs and has to complete 120 hours of community service.
Following investigations by North Herts Operation Scorpion team, Paton was arrested on August 1, 2013, after she was found to have amphetamine, drugs paraphernalia and deal bags in her possession.
Investigating officer PC Richard Boot said: “Drug related crime in North Herts is low and we intend to keep it that way.
“I hope that this sentencing sends out a message that we are determined to drive drugs out of North Herts and will deal robustly with anyone involved in drugs related offences.
“Drug dealing can adversely affect communities and if members of the public suspect that someone who lives in their area is involved in drugs or is dealing in them, please do not hesitate to contact us as soon as possible.
