Detective Inspector Gary Scarfe said: ‘This sentencing is another positive result from an operation run in the Medway towns to remove drugs from our streets.

‘So far this operation alone has seen more than 25 suspects arrested and over 29 years in custodial sentences handed out by the court, with many other suspects currently going through the criminal justice system.

‘There is no place for drugs in Kent and we will continue to use our resources to proactively target those who are seeking to make money from the destruction drugs cause to our communities.’
