By William Janes

Police officers investigating the theft of a coffee machine from a department store have uncovered a suspected drugs supply network.

Following the arrest on Monday, March 5 of a 29-year-old alleged to have been stealing from Beales department store in Tonbridge, police searched an address in Hectorage Road believing he may have been linked to a number of other thefts in the town.

Officers entered the property later the same day to find two men inside along with evidence of the address being used as a base to supply heroin and crack cocaine.
