A TEENAGER who was swearing in the street outside Penrith police station in the early hours of Saturday was found to be in possession of class B and C drugs.
The 18-year-old woman, who is from the Penrith area, went to the station in Hunter Lane at around 3am “after a night of drinking”, according to officers.
A Cumbria Constabulary spokesman said: “We were notified by a member of the public of a very intoxicated female outside Penrith police station.
