During the search, Kyle’s officers discovered a quantity of cocaine and cannabis and were arrested for possession of illegal drugs.
Officers then searched the car where they recovered a large bag in the backseat which contained a large amount of cannabis was discovered along with a set of scales and pressure bags.
Ronnie admitted that the drugs belonged to her and that she was arrested for possession with intent to supply Class B drugs (cannabis) as well as drug driving after failing a drug test at the scene. .
During a follow-up search at the 27-year-old’s home in Saltney Terrace, Saltney, officers found another 190 grams of cannabis worth between Â£ 1,370 and Â£ 2,105.
The two men were subsequently charged in connection with the incident and both pleaded guilty to the offenses.
Kyle, of Graham Road, Chester, appeared in Chester Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, June 1, where he was sentenced to 18 months on parole for possession of Class A and B drugs.
Ronnie returned to Chester Crown Court on Thursday July 15 where she was sentenced to eight months in prison, suspended for two years, for possession with intent to supply Class B drugs.

Constable Ashley Davies, of Chester CID, said: facing the consequences of his actions.
âDuring questioning, Ronnie attempted to pretend that all the drugs were for personal use and that she had purchased them for the Christmas period.
âHowever, his claim collapsed when we found a fanny pack belonging to him which contained Â£ 350 in cash and a list detailing the names of all of his customers and how much money they owed.
“I hope this case serves as a warning to others who are considering coming to Chester to sell drugs.”
