A police investigation into county lines cases led officers to Bodur.

They raided his home on Thursday, October 24, and found mobile phones with incriminating messages, as well as £5,300 in cash in a shoebox.

Concealed in a plastic box was £3,320 worth of heroine and crack cocaine.

Bodur had kept several large knives and two imitation firearms in his bedroom and a tear gas canister next to the front door of the property.

The 22-year-old admitted drug dealing offences, possession of a CS gas canister and possession of criminal property.

He was sentenced to five years two months’ imprisonment at Maidstone Crown Court on Friday.

Investigating officer DC Terry Hanlon, of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, said: "Bodur thought he was safe to co-ordinate a drug dealing network in Medway from his bedroom in London, however, our officers are relentless in their approach to tracking down dealers and putting them behind bars.

"This sentence sends a clear message we will continue to target those who believe they can come into the county and attempt to sell drugs to the vulnerable people in our communities."
