Charles Riddleston, defending, said she telephoned the police station to talk to Inspector Solomon.
"He agreed she would go to the police station and he would speak to her. She was in town and if she didn't going into the police station she would do something stupid there.
"It is not dissimilar in any way to her behaviour exhibited in the past three years on and off."
The court heard Offord had been in custody since the afternoon before her court appearance. The offence put her in breach of a conditional discharge imposed on September 3.
Bench chairman Michael Osborne told her: "We are going to revoke the conditional discharge and you will be kept in the cells until the court rises today."
An order was made to destroy the drugs.
