A drug dealer caught with more than £8,000 worth of cocaine at his Canterbury home has been jailed.
Police raided James Brown's house in Pine Tree Avenue in September last year, uncovering a stash of bags containing white powder.
They also seized large amounts of cash and digital pocket scales used for weighing the drug.
The 33-year-old was charged with possession with intent to supply the class A substance in March, and later pleaded guilty at Canterbury Crown Court.
He returned there yesterday, when he was jailed for four years and four months.
After sentencing, Detective Constable Gary Stamp said: "Kent Police does not tolerate the behaviour of those who think it is acceptable to try and sell drugs in the county.
"I hope this result sends a strong message to people who think they can get away with committing crime – detectives are dedicated to identifying suspects and bringing offenders before the courts."
