Drugs, cash and phones have been seized and six suspected drug dealers arrested as part of an ongoing investigation by Kent Police.

On the mornings of Tuesday 27, Wednesday 28 and Thursday 29 September 2022, officers carried out warrants at a number of properties in the Thanet area.

Six men, aged between 29 and 41, were arrested on suspicion of drugs offences and phones, suspected cocaine and more than £9,000 in cash was seized.

An investigation into a possible drug dealing network in the area is ongoing and the suspects have been released under investigation while further enquiries are carried out.

Thanet’s District Commander Chief Inspector Matthew Smith said: ‘Kent Police is all too aware of the violence, anti-social behaviour and other crime which drug dealing brings to our communities.

‘We are determined to dismantle the networks who traffic drugs into our area and will pursue, arrest and charge those involved at every opportunity.’
