Waiuku Meth dealer jailed for six years, two months
A meth dealer from Waiuku who was arrested in November last year has been sentenced to jail for six years and two months.
Anna Muir, from Waiuku pleaded guilty to charges of offering to supply methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine for supply, supplying methamphetamine and possession of cannabis for supply.
Justice Paul Heath noted that as well as being a dealer, she was also an addict.
Muir was one of nine people arrested during Operation Daydream, by 40 Waikato District Police officers who were targeting meth dealers in Waiuku, Paeroa, Matamata and Te Aroha.
She was arrested in November 2015 behind a Bombay gas station. Police found thousands of dollars of cash in her car, along with the drug itself.
After analysing her phone records and other information, it was confirmed that Muir had sourced and sold 520g of methamphetamine. The judge called this a “prolific” level dealing.
However, Justice Heath found that she was remorseful, and had turned a corner. He suggested that she reconnect with her young children after being released from prison.
Muir must serve at least three years and one month of her sentence before she can be considered for release.
