TWO dealers have been sentenced by the courts after police pulled over a vehicle being driven in an erratic manner.

The pair’s illegal activity came to an abrupt end at 4.40am on May 29, 2022, when police on patrol in Widnes stopped a white Audi A4 on Hale Road.

This was due to the erratic driving of the driver.

Jordan Brook, aged 31 and of Fulbeck in Widnes, was behind the wheel of the car – even though he was disqualified from driving and uninsured.

Brook was arrested for driving offences, with checks revealing that the car was registered and insured to Katie Rees, the passenger, also aged 31 and of Frederick Street in Widnes.

A search of Brook uncovered a vial of cocaine, two mobile phones and a dealer book, and he was then further arrested for possession with intent to supply class A drugs.

Officers proceeded to search the car, and this revealed the presence of mobile phones, a tub of Xanax, wraps of white powder, snap bags of cannabis, drug paraphernalia and cash.

Cheshire Police subsequently charged Brook with possession with intent to supply cocaine and cannabis, as well as being concerned in the supply of MDMA and the psychedelic drug DMT.

Rees meanwhile was charged with being concerned in the supply cannabis, as well as the possession of the class B drug.

Appearing before Liverpool Crown Court, Brook was sentenced this week to 28 months immediate imprisonment.

Rees was handed 12 weeks behind bars suspended for 12 months, as well as 200 hours of unpaid work and rehabilitation.

The sentence was welcomed by PC Mike Screawn, of Cheshire Police, who said: “I hope this reassures people that we are out there 24/7, proactively stopping and searching those who come to our attention and getting such positive results.

“I hope this also shows those intent on dealing drugs in Cheshire that we are actively seeking those who are committing crime, so that we can take them off the streets and put them before the courts.”
