Two class-A drug dealers in Folkestone have each been jailed for more than two years.

On Wednesday 9 November 2022Alfie Bean was sought by officers from the County Line and Gangs Team after their intelligence suggested that Bean had been making phone calls from a known drug dealing mobile number. He was located at a shop in Sandgate Road along with his friend Riley Day, who officers suspected was also involved in drug supply.

Both men were arrested and Bean’s phone was seized. A search was carried out at a premises they shared in the town and police found heroin and crack cocaine along with a burner phone.

Detectives found links between both men and two county line drug networks in the area. The phones that were seized showed evidence of drug supply and also had videos of the pair showing their cash and drugs.


Bean, 18, from Canterbury and Day, 22, of no fixed address both admitted charges of being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine and heroin and possession of crack cocaine and heroin with intent to supply.

On Thursday 23 February 2023, they were both sentenced at Canterbury Crown Court. Bean was given a two-and-a-half year term in a Young Offenders Institute and Day was jailed for two years and eight months.
