A woman connected to the deaths of two men has been jailed after after murder detectives found crack cocaine in her home.
Officers made the discovery in Farrah Fadli’s property in Ayr while they investigated the death of Morgan Dunn, 34.
The bodybuilder was fatally stabbed in the 33-year-old’s home by Marius Bauba in February last year.
A court heard how police found the rock of cocaine, which weighed 21.84g and has a street value of £880.
They also discovered an expensive Louis Vuitton bag and £4020 at her house in Ayr.
Fadli, also known as Gillespie, was also convicted at Ayr Sheriff Court of breaching bail conditions when she went to a house party while infected with Covid-19.
Police were forced to smash their way into the property in the seaside town when the owner refused to open the door.
Fadli confirmed she had been diagnosed with the deadly bug when officers asked about her bad cough after finding her hiding in a cupboard.
She shouted and swore at the officers and said: “I don’t give a **** if I’ve got coronavirus, I’ll do what I want.”
The dealer admitted possession of drugs with intent to supply, breaching her curfew and threatening or abusive behaviour at an earlier hearing.
Her lawyer Scott McQuire said: “She was living a fairly chaotic lifestyle. The drugs were brought to her home by others.
“She consumes drugs and they were shared between her and others.
“Police had been contacted in relation to another matter, – a man had been very seriously injured, and subsequently died.
“She summoned an ambulance and performed CPR. Subsequently her house was searched and the drugs were found.
“She very much regrets her conduct. She had attended hospital in relation to her cough and was advised she had been positive for Covid but was advised that she was reaching the end of the infectious period.

“Clearly her actions must have caused great anxiety to the police officers involved in this.”
The court was told that the mum-of-three was afraid of going to prison, but Sheriff John Montgomery jailed her for 15 months.
He added “No disposal other than a custodial disposal is appropriate in respect of these crimes.”
Bauba killed Mr Dunn and tried to dodge arrest by dying his hair and checking into hotels in Dumfries, Gretna and Carlisle using false names.
He was jailed for nine years for culpable homicide but died after being discovered in his cell on July 24. He is thought to have suffered a heart attack.
A manhunt was launched for Fadli in 2016 when she disappeared following the death of John Smith, in Stevenston, Ayrshire.
Craig Munro was cleared of the 52-year-old’s murder but jailed for nine years after being found guilty of attempting to murder his nephew, John McDade.
Violence had erupted amid claims Fadli had been “stirring things up” between Munro and Mr McDade, who had both been in a relationship with her.
She was later found with Munro and Allan Robertson, who was cleared in of charges relating the the death of Mr McDade.
