KIERON Dyer's teenage sister has been spared jail after £850 of heroin was found hidden in her underwear.

Kirsha Dyer, 19, of Bentley Road, Ipswich, the younger sister of former Ipswich ace Kieron, was searched last year after police stopped the car she was driving.

Officers found the stash of class A drugs as well as £150 stuffed in her bra.

A judge today suspended the teenager's prison sentence after Peterborough Crown Court heard she had become "besotted" with a drug dealer.

In the passenger seat of the vehicle she was driving when she was pulled over was her boyfriend, Ricky Fearon.

The 19-year-old, of Chiswick, west London, claimed he had no knowledge of the drugs found on Dyer.

However a jury in his trial found him guilty of possession with intent to supply.

Peter Gair, prosecuting, said: "Miss Dyer was acting together with the defendant Fearon in transporting those drugs through Ipswich town centre that lunchtime.

“And the quantity of the drugs was so great that it is not consistent with personal use for either of them.''

Mark Haslam, defending Dyer, told the court: "We say that the co-defendant is the villain of the piece.

“We say if it were not for him we would not be in this position.''

Dyer was handed a 50-week prison sentence suspended for two years and was ordered to undertake 100 hours of unpaid work.

Judge Peter de Mille told Dyer: "I accept in your case the fact that the relationship you had with your co-accused was one in which you were infatuated by him.”
