A drug dealer caught in the act by police dishing out cocaine in a park has been jailed.
County line dealer Reece Modeste was found in the Great Lines in Chatham with cocaine and heroin on him.
Officers were called on June 10 to reports a drug deal was in progress and Modeste was found sitting with another man.
When police searched him they found 20 wraps of cocaine and heroin on Modeste and then a review of data on his phone found messages relating to drug dealing.
The 25-year-old of Dunlin Drive, St Mary's Island appeared at Maidstone Crown Court on October 5.
He admitted a charge of possessing heroin and cocaine with intent to supply after an investigation by the Kent Police County Lines and Gangs Team.
Modeste was jailed for two years and nine months.
Investigating officer Robert Parker said: "We are committed to eradicating county lines dealing in Kent. We will relentlessly pursue those who deal in the death and misery of class A drugs and exploit some of the most vulnerable people in our communities."
