A FORMER couple are now facing jail after admitting their involvement in a £12,000 Ardrossan drug ring.

Gillian McGregor and Lisa McKinnon pleaded guilty this week to dealing cocaine and cannabis from the home they used to share in Elm Park.

McGregor, 32, and McKinnon, 27, admitted the offence after officers found the drugs stashed in a dressing gown, bread bin, biscuit tin and a cupboard under the stairs.

They were found to have 33.67g of cocaine and cannabis weighing 1.413Kg, as well as £1,750.59, stashed in their home.

They now face up to five years in prison.
