A 57-year-old heroin and crack cocaine dealer has been jailed for supplying drugs in Medway.
Trevor Greene was arrested by detectives from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate after he was observed supplying the drugs in Chatham.
He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to two and a half years at Maidstone Crown Court on Friday, May 11.
The court heard that Greene, of Devon Close in Chatham, is known to have supplied heroin and crack cocaine in July and August last year.
He operated mainly in the Kingfisher Drive and Hopewell Drive area of Chatham.
Officers were able to obtain a quantity of the drugs Greene was supplying and forensic analysis of the heroin found it had been cut with paracetamol and caffeine.
Detective Inspector Gary Scarfe, from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, said: ‘This sentencing is another positive result from an operation run in the Medway towns to remove drugs from our streets.
"So far this operation alone has seen more than 25 suspects arrested and over 29 years in custodial sentences handed out by the court, with many other suspects currently going through the criminal justice system.
"There is no place for drugs in Kent and we will continue to use our resources to pro-actively target those who are seeking to make money from the destruction drugs cause to our communities."
