Four members of a Lichfield family and one of their friends have admitted conspiracy to supply a Class B drug.

Tina Gair (45), her husband Richard (47), and their son Duane (20), all from Meadowbrook Road in Lichfield, one of their daughters, Kerry Gair (24) from Leyfields in Lichfield, and Patsy-Anne Lenton (37) from Stychbrook Gardens in Lichfield, had initially pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to supply cannabis vegetation following a trial at Stafford Crown Court. But they changed their plea to guilty during the trial.

The case was adjourned for sentencing on November 20 at Birmingham Crown Court.

Three other people charged with the same offence were found not guilty.

Lichfield neighbourhood policing unit commander, Insp Trevor Steventon, said:

“Police conducted an investigation following concerns raised by people in the local community. This resulted in the arrest of eight people in September last year.

“We act on every piece of information we receive and we are determined to continue to target drug users and bring them to justice.

“We would encourage anyone who has any concerns or information about drug misuse or drug dealers, to contact us.”

Anyone with information can phone their local police on 0300 123 44 55, or anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
