'Greedy' lesbian couple who sold cocaine to fund luxury lifestyle are jailed

A glamorous couple earning £60,000-a-year turned to selling cocaine to pay for luxury foreign holidays and designer clothes.

Katie Barrington and Trenae Greenland were jailed for topping up earnings from their day jobs by becoming evening and weekend cocaine dealers.

A court heard the pair had been in a five-year relationship and had a "sound future" together, before they were caught by police.

Prosecutor Nigel Fryer said the pair earned "upwards of £100 a day on a weekday and £200 on a weekend" by selling cocaine, and would pick and choose when they worked.

Mr Fryer said: "There were many conversations about future holidays, expensive holidays.

"Their motivation here was greed."

Mr Fryer said searches of 30-year-old Greenland's address found cash and high-value designer clothing.

He said they were spotted in a Volkswagen Golf parked outside a block of flats when a man came out to their car and then left again.

Mr Fryer said: "Officers quickly came to the view a drug deal was taking place.

“A large amount of cash was recovered."

Newport Crown Court heard officers also found three bags of white powder and a Nokia mobile phone that the women had tried to conceal in the car, as well as an iPhone.

Mr Fryers said that officers analysed the phone and found references to how much money they were making by drug dealing.

The pair, of Newport, Gwent, admitted possession of cocaine with intent to supply, being concerned in the supply of cocaine, and possession of criminal property.
