A man and woman have been jailed for drug dealing after their activities were exposed during a routine car stop by police.

A vehicle driven by Blake Priestley was only insured to be driven by a female and so officers signalled for him to stop.

There was a strong smell of cannabis in the car and drugs were found when it was searched.

At Dunfermline Sheriff Court, 27-year-old Stephanie Guiry, of Loch Street, Townhill and Blake Priestley, 30, of Cluny Park, Cardenden, appeared for sentencing.

They previously admitted that between February 12 and November 12, 2020, at North Road, Inverkeithing, Fod Street, Dunfermline and elsewhere, they were concerned in the supply of cocaine.

They admitted that between April 2 and November 12, 2020, at the same addresses they were concerned in the supply of LSD.

Priestley admitted that between May 17 and November 12, 2020, he was concerned in the supply of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Guiry admitted that between May 21 and November 12, 2020, she was concerned in the supply of cannabis resin.

Depute fiscal Alistair McDermid told the court a Volvo car being driven by Priestley was stopped by police near Dalgety Bay at 7.30pm and officers could smell cannabis inside the vehicle.

He said he was driving the car to Guiry’s house and that it was her vehicle. He was detained and the car was searched with drugs found.

Later that night a search was carried out at Guiry’s home in Fod Street where more drugs were found as well as £2920 in cash.

Each of them was ordered to pay £1460 under confiscation procedure and this will come from the money seized.

A phone seized was analysed and showed thousands of text messages relating to drug dealing, the court was told.

Sheriff Lindsay Foulis jailed Priestley for 42 months and Guiry for 27 months.
