Dartford drug dealer jailed after supplying crack cocaine and heroin

A drug dealer who hid crack cocaine and heroin in hollowed out vapes has been jailed for more than four years.

An investigation was launched after a car owned by Kenneth Fenton, from Dartford, and driven by Matthew Smith was stopped by the police in May.

Smith was arrested after officers searched the vehicle and seized crack cocaine and heroin hidden in vapes.

A mobile phone recovered from the car contained text messages from Fenton to Smith that implicated them both in the supply of drugs.

Officers proved Fenton was running the Ash drug line in Dartford, and on Thursday, August 10, he was arrested while driving the same vehicle in Keyes Road.

More crack cocaine and heroin hidden inside vapes, along with cash and a mobile phone were recovered.

Fenton, 39, was later charged and the Balmoral Road resident was sentenced at Woolwich Crown Court after he admitted being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine and heroin.

On Monday, December 4, he was jailed for four years and four months.

Smith, 34, of Lane Avenue, Greenhithe, was charged with drug and weapon offences and was sentenced to three years and nine months in jail on Thursday, June 29.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Michael Nolan said: “Kent Police works hard to dismantle and remove county line networks from our streets. Fenton was supplying class A drugs to vulnerable drug users in order to profit.

“He used Smith to deal drugs in order to distance himself from the criminality, but our investigation linked him to the offending, and he has now been removed from the streets and sentenced accordingly.’
