A WOMAN caught supplying drugs and who then escaped from police has been jailed for three years and two months.

Skye Wooldridge, 21, of Hereford Drive, Taunton, formerly David, was arrested in Lower Street, Salisbury, on October 19, after she was found in possession of crack cocaine.

She was taken to the Royal United Hospital in Bath as a medical precaution but escaped as she was leaving the emergency department.

An appeal regarding her whereabouts was released asking for information and she was later found in the Thames Valley area.

Wooldridge was charged with escaping from lawful custody, as well as breaching a suspended sentence order, possession of class A drugs, breach of a Community Behaviour Order and resisting a constable.

On January 16, she appeared at Plymouth Crown Court and was sentenced to a total of 38 months’ imprisonment.

PC Joe Shanklin said: “Wooldridge has been uncooperative since her arrest – she escaped from officers at the RUH and was later located in the Thames Valley area several days later.

“I am satisfied with the sentence handed out – removing class A drugs from Salisbury’s streets.

“If you suspect drug activity to be taking place in your area, we’d like to hear from you. All information will be dealt with confidentially.”
