Two men have been arrested after after a double drugs strike in Maidstone.
The police team used a drugs dog as they raided a flat in Scotney Gardens in St Peters Street, on Friday morning, November 9, and arrested a 24-year-old man for possession with intent to supply cannabis.
An amount of cannabis and a convertible BMW car was seized before the team moved on to a site in Dickens Road, Ringlestone, where they found a number of wraps of heroin and arrested a 32 year-old man for possession with intent to supply the drug.
Police Constable James Arnold from Kent Police, who coordinated the operation, said: “Drugs tend to go hand in hand with other offences in the area, such as theft, and anti-social behaviour. Making arrests and seizing drugs, as we have done today, keeps the pressure on people who are involved in drug crime in Maidstone and we will be keeping up that pressure.”
He added: “On many occasions, action like this is as a result of information we receive from the community and the feedback we have received from local residents today has been overwhelmingly positive. We are very grateful for the support we receive from the public, and I would encourage people to continue to report suspicious behaviour to us so we can deprive drugs dealers of trade in Maidstone.”
