A Dagenham man has been arrested on suspicion of dealing drugs in Kent.

The 24-year-old was arrested in Canterbury yesterday following a report of suspicious activity.

He was arrested on suspicion of possession of cannabis and of supplying Class A drugs, and released pending further enquiries.

Det Sgt Gary Stamp highlighted the importance of people reporting anything suspicious, saying: “If people have any concerns that illegal activity relating to drug taking or supplying is taking place in their street or community, I ask them to report it on 101.
