Crewe couple jailed for dealing class A drugs

A man and woman have both been jailed after admitting dealing class A drugs in Crewe.

Officers stopped a blue Jaguar x-type car on Macron Way, at 10.35am on Wednesday 29 May, because it had no insurance or valid MOT.

An officer noticed some drugs paraphernalia in the driver’s footwell and then searched the car.

They found a tobacco tin with 28 wraps – 13 of heroin and 15 of crack cocaine.

Officers also found a phone which was used to coordinate drug sales.

Stephen Jones, 36, and Donna Peacock, 31, of Fanshawe Walk, were arrested.

£300 in cash and a further quantity of drugs were found during a search of their home address.

In custody a further £133 was recovered from Peacock.

In interview Peacock claimed the drugs were for personal use. Jones made no comment.

The pair both pleaded guilty at Chester Crown Court to two counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs (cocaine and heroin) and one count of possessing criminal property.

They have each been sentenced to spend three years behind bars.

Detective Constable Peter Taylor said: “Drugs have a huge impact on our communities so any time we seize drugs and take dealers off our streets it is a positive.

“Hopefully, the time in prison will give Jones and Peacock time to change their ways.”
