A drug dealer from Faversham who was caught supplying cocaine and heroin has been jailed.

Lewis Cady admitted selling the drugs in Faversham and was jailed for three years and four months when he appeared at Maidstone Crown Court on 19 January 2021.

The 35-year-old of Perry Wood, Selling, was arrested on 1 December 2020 by officers who were patrolling the town centre.

Cady was seen sitting on a stationary e-scooter in East Street alongside a known drug user and, after observing Cady’s behaviour, officers detained him for a drug search.

He was found to be in possession of 65 individual wraps of both white and brown substances. A sample was tested which indicated they were heroin and cocaine.

Cady was arrested on suspicion of drug offences and further investigation confirmed the substances had an estimated street value of between £650 and £1,300.

He was later charged with the offences, which he also admitted in court.

Investigating officer, PC Jill Stoneham said: ‘Cady was openly supplying class A drugs in Faversham, targeting vulnerable drug users.

‘Drugs not only destroy the lives of those who consume them but also friends and family who are associated with them.

‘I’m pleased Cady has been jailed and I would encourage anyone concerned about drug dealing in their area to call Kent Police on 101, or report it via our website, so we can investigate accordingly.’
