A Folkestone drug dealer who was caught with illegal substances three times in just over a year has been jailed.
John Andrew was found with LSD, MDMA, heroin, cocaine and cannabis following work by officers from the town’s Community Safety Unit.
The 43-year-old admitted possession of class A, class B and class C drugs with intent to supply at Canterbury Crown Court and was jailed for five years on Friday 8 January 2021.
PC Katie Garcia, of the Folkestone Community Safety Unit, said: ‘Andrew’s repeated possession of a range of drugs, even after he was charged, shows he was determined to keep dealing and profit from the misery of others.
‘This case highlights the importance of residents proactively coming forward with information that supports police in prosecuting drug dealers and I would like to thank everyone who helped our work.
‘The five-year sentence handed down by the court shows that considerable prison terms await drug dealers and I hope it will act as a warning to anyone else tempted to get involved.’
