Friend had been arrested for a similar incident on April 3 when police seized 200 wraps of class A drugs, along with cash and a phone in a vehicle she was in with another man.

Following Friend's arrest she was released under investigation and was arrested 10 days later while with Hunt.

She was jailed for two and a half years.
