A Buxton woman caught in possession of amphetamine on two consecutive days, breaching a suspended prison sentence, is to be sentenced at the crown court.

Suzanne Jane Kirk was stopped by police on Monsal Avenue, Fairfield, at 3am on October 7, High Peak Magistrates’ Court heard. She was searched and found to be in possession of a number of bags containing traces of powder, with one bag containing a white paste. The drugs were found to be amphetamine. In interview Kirk said she had attempted to inject herself with the drug but couldn’t because her veins had collapsed, prosecutor Jennifer Fitzgerald said.

On October 8, she was arrested and found to be in possession of a bag of amphetamine worth between £20 and £30.

Kirk, 32, of St James’ Court, Harpur Hill, admitted possessing a class B drug. The court heard she had been given 12 months in prison, suspended for two years, at Derby Crown Court in December 2011.

Kirsten Collings, defending, said: “It is very low value and she has pleaded guilty.”

Kirk will be sentenced at Derby Crown Court on May 10.
