Dealer who crashed on M20 near Aylesford jailed after police find more than 12,000 deals of LSD

A driver who crashed into a barrier on the M20 after taking ketamine has been jailed for more than four years after officers seized more than 12,000 deals of LSD.

On Wednesday July 22, police attended the coastbound carriageway of the M20 near the junction for Blue Bell Hill, following a report a vehicle had been driving erratically before coming to a halt.

The officers found the van stationary against a barrier on the hard shoulder and the driver, Jack Supple, admitted he had taken ketamine.

He was arrested and a search of his vehicle recovered perforated cardboard sheets of LSD deals on the sun visor and inside a sports bag on the back seat.

A small bag containing ketamine was also seized from the front passenger footwell.

His home address was searched and more LSD deals were found along with around £2,000 in cash hidden inside a bottle.

Supple, of Upper Street, Leeds, Maidstone was later charged with possession of class A drugs with intent to supply, possession of class B drugs and acquiring criminal property, the seized cash.

He pleaded guilty at Maidstone Crown Court and yesterday the 31-year-old was sentenced to four years and six months in prison.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Tony Hatcher of Tonbridge CID said: "In total, our officers seized 12,342 LSD deals with an estimated street value of almost £21,000.

"This is a significant quantity of class A drugs and it is only right Supple is now serving a prison sentence.

"It is wrong that drug dealers profit from their criminality and we will be seeking confiscation of the cash seized on the search of his home address."
