‘Dangerous’ drug dealer jailed

A WESTON drug dealer, with more than 250 offences on her record, has been jailed this week.

Violet Ho, aged 59, was sentenced to two years in prison for possessing and supplying heroin by a judge at Bristol Crown Court on Thursday.

Ho, who admitted the offences in court earlier this month, was a danger to the community according to PC Richard Grierson.

He said: “While Violet Ho is living in our community, she is a danger not only to herself but to the people she is dealing heroin to.

“Add that to the 250-plus offences on her record for the likes of theft and shoplifting to fund her addiction, and you can see just how much she was blighting our town.”
