Mum almost evicted over son’s stash of Class A drugs

Have your say

A mum who allowed her son to store heroin and cocaine at her Sheffield home was given a last chance to avoid eviction.

Allison Gormanly, aged 50, of Batemoor Drive, Batemoor, received a suspended possession order at Sheffield County Court, valid until 2017.

The case followed a police raid on the property last October, where 477g of heroin and 340g of cocaine were seized along with paraphernalia related to preparing drugs for sale.

Gormanly’s son, Fraser Gormanly, aged 27, was jailed for six years at Sheffield Crown Court after being convicted of possession with intent to supply heroin and cocaine.

Coun Harry Harpham, Sheffield Council cabinet member for housing, said: “We will not tolerate criminal activity in any of our properties and will always take swift action to tackle it, in partnership with the police. Gormanly will face eviction if her tenancy is breached again.”

She must pay £244.50 costs.
