Around 7,000 suspected LSD deals were seized from a van on the M2 near Aylesford after officers were called to a vehicle driving erratically.

 

The incident happened at 6.05pm on Wednesday 22 July 2020 after members of the public reported the van had come to a stop against a barrier on the hard shoulder of the coastbound carriageway, near the junction for Bluebell Hill. 

 

A patrol from Kent Police’s Roads Policing Unit attended and the driver, a man in his 30s from the Maidstone area, was arrested on suspicion of driving whilst unfit through drugs.

 

When the van was searched the officers found a plastic bag containing a quantity of suspected ketamine and 11 perforated cardboard sheets of suspected LSD deals (photo).

 

The driver was further arrested on suspicion of possessing Class A drugs with intent to supply and possession of Class B drugs. A search of his home address led to the seizure of more suspected LSD deals and a quantity of cash.

 

The suspect remains in police custody while the investigation continues.
