A Welshpool drug runner who was jailed after being caught with £5,000 of crack cocaine posed for a Facebook selfie wearing a judge's wig it has been revealed.

Kareen Bagnall, 22, posted the cheeky picture to her Facebook page in May, adding: 'One day'.

She was first arrested in January after police found her and her mother Anthea with the stash in her car in Birmingham.

Kareen Bagnall had been on bail when the picture of her staring at the camera in the wig was posted on her page.

The pair had been drug runners in a huge crime syndicate across the Midlands which supplied heroin, crack cocaine and guns.

Known as 'County Lines', the gang of nine were imprisoned for more than 60 years in total following the joint operation between West Midlands Regional Organised Crime Unit and the National Crime Agency.

Ringleader Mohammed Rafiq Khan, 29 from Bordeseley Green, Birmingham, was detained at Shrewsbury train station in February 2017 where he was found in possession of five mobile phones, over £1,500 in cash and tickets to Dubai.

Investigations revealed more than 100 calls per day were made using Khan's line to drug users in Welshpool, Shrewsbury and Birmingham.

A total of 14 sawn-off shotguns were recovered and more than five kilos of Class A drugs were distributed through the illegal operations.
