On Thursday, January 19, 2023, the 21-year-old was sentenced to three years and ten months in prison at Canterbury Crown Court.

‘I hope this case sends two messages to anyone thinking about dealing drugs,’ said Detective Sergeant Richard Allingham of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate.

‘The first is that you may become another victim of the serious violence that all too often goes hand in hand with county lines activity.

‘The second is that you will end up in prison, with sentences commensurate with the impact these groups have on our communities.’
