Harriet Wran buys Newtown property months after facing court over drug possession

Recovering ice addict Harriet Wran has snapped up a $1.605million house just months after facing court for drug possession.

Wran, the 31-year-old daughter of former New South Wales premier Neville Wran, was seen walking through the newly-bought Newtown property, in Sydney’s inner-west, following an auction on Saturday.

Real estate agency McGrath bid on the double-fronted free standing cottage on Wran’s behalf, while the property was purchased through Urbane Property, The Australian reported.  

The timber lined, 259sqm cottage comprises of three bedrooms, one bathroom and a fireplace.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted McGrath for comment, while Urbane Property declined to comment.

Wran’s property purchase comes months after she was hauled before the courts.

In March, police pulled Wran over at a Central Coast service station, according to police facts filed to court.

A male passenger fled as police approached Wran’s car with letters and envelopes spilling onto the ground.

They were addressed to numerous individuals from Sydney to the Central Coast and when Wran greeted officers they noticed uncapped syringes protruding from the front pocket of her jumper.

Police found credit cards in other people’s names, baggage and electronic items including laptops, with Wran giving inconsistent answers as to who owned them, the facts state.

When the officers showed her two resealable bags they’d found containing a white crystal substance she said: ‘Awesome, now I’m definitely under arrest, aren’t I?’

Wran pleaded guilty in April to possessing drugs, goods in custody and not displaying P-plates.

In a letter to the court, Wran said she’d relapsed a few months before the offences, becoming ‘hopelessly stuck in daily addiction, continuously using to stamp out the pain and mortification of having picked up that awful drug’.

‘As a direct result of the drugs and my desperate cravings for them, I kept the wrong company and thus landed in dark situations, one of those being the night of my arrest,’ she wrote.

She was fined $550 for the drug and P-plate offences and was handed a 12-month community corrections order for the goods on premises offence.

The conditions of her community corrections order include she abstain from drugs unless prescribed and participates in any treatment specified by a community corrections officer. 

Only in 2016 she was released from jail after serving two years for her role in a robbery, which led to the murder of drug dealer Daniel McNulty in August 2014. 

Wran was with her ex-boyfriend Michael Lee and his friend Lloyd Haines when they spontaneously robbed Mr McNulty at his inner-Sydney housing commission flat.

A struggle broke out and 37-year-old Lee stabbed McNulty to death.

Lee was sentenced to at least 13 years for the ‘senseless’ stabbing murder.

Haines, 31, who knew Lee had a knife but did not think he would use it, was jailed for at least 11 years.

Wran was arrested after a sleepless six-day ice bender.

She said she thought the men would only rob McNulty, not kill him.

She was given a maximum four-year term for being an accessory to the August 2014 murder, robbery in company and harbouring her killer boyfriend afterwards.
