By Luke May

The theft of a coffee machine from a Tonbridge department store has led police to a home thought to be used for selling Class A drugs.

On Monday, a 29-year-old man was arrested amid allegations of shoplifting from Beales in the Angel Centre.

Officers suspected he was involved in other reported thefts around the town and a search warrant was issued.

Police started investigating after a coffee machine was stolen from Beales in Tonbridge.
