A suspected cocaine supply chain has been disrupted by officers on patrol in Sevenoaks.

Almost 30 street deals were seized along with a kitchen knife, after constables approached a suspicious vehicle near the High Street.

At around 11pm on Friday 1 December 2023, the car was initially seen by officers from the Sevenoaks Local Policing Team parked in a layby.

It drove away and was followed for a short distance before it came to a stop in Buckhurst Lane.

Initial searches led to the recovery of a knife, around £700 in cash and a quantity of cannabis. The driver was taken into custody, where 27 wraps of cocaine were also recovered.

A man aged 22, of no fixed address, was later charged with two counts of possessing drugs with intent to supply, possessing a knife in a public place and with possessing criminal property (namely the seized cash).

He was remanded to appear before Medway Magistrates’ Court on Monday 4 December.
