Maidstone: Teenager found with hammer during suspected drug deal

A teenager was found to have a claw hammer when police swooped on a suspected drug deal on a river towpath.

Officers patrolling the Lockmeadow area, in Maidstone, yesterday saw a meeting taking place on the towpath of the River Medway.

They stopped a 19-year-old man from Ealing and a teenager from Maidstone, and on searching them found seven wraps of substances believed to be heroin and cocaine, £120 cash and two mobile phones on the man from London.
