A DRUG-DRIVER has been banned from the roads after she was caught out in a Hereford avenue.

Chantelle Reeve entered a guilty plea to one count of driving while over the drug limit when she appeared before magistrates this month.

The court heard from prosecutor Owen Beale that the 38-year-old had been caught drug-driving in Wilton Avenue in Hereford after getting behind the wheel of a blue Vauxhall Astra while over the limit on September 27, 2023.

A blood test revealed she had 200 microgrammes of benzoylecgonine per litre of blood. The limit is 50.


Magistrates in Hereford handed Reeve, of Wilton Avenue, Hereford, a driving ban and disqualified her from driving for 16 months.

She was also fined £160, and must pay costs of £85 and a £64 victim surcharge.

Magistrates said her guilty plea was taken into account when coming to a decision on the sentence they would impose.
