Suspected drug dealer from Sheerness arrested following seizure campaign at Sheerness Railway Station

An alleged drug dealer has been arrested after 70 wraps of suspected crack cocaine and heroin were found.

Officers from the Swale Community Police Team worked with the British Transport Police to set up a knife detection station at Sheerness Railway Station in Bridge Road on Friday.

At about 11.15am, a man got off a train and appeared to avoid going past the knife detector and purposely stay clear of the drugs dog.

Officers then went to an alleyway off nearby Beach Street where they seized almost 70 wraps, thought to be crack cocaine and heroin, two phones and about £1,200 in cash.

Following the find, a 28-year-old man from Sheerness was arrested later the same day on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class-A drugs.

He was bailed while an investigation continues.
