Class A drugs and cash have been seized and a suspected drug dealer arrested in Canterbury.

Officers from the city’s Community Policing Team were on patrol in the Kingsmead Road area on the morning of Wednesday 7 April 2021 when they spotted suspicious activity nearby.

Three men were spoken to before a man was arrested on suspicion of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply.

The 20-year-old has since been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

A quantity of suspected crack cocaine, cash and a mobile phone has been seized as part of the ongoing investigation.

Acting Sergeant Richard Lorimer, of Canterbury Community Policing Team, said: ‘Kent Police is committed to disrupting and shutting down the drug dealing networks which target vulnerable people in our communities and I am pleased that, in this instance, class A drugs and criminal cash have been removed from circulation in Canterbury.
