Bromley Drug Dealer Jailed over Text Adverts for Cocaine and Heroin

A drug dealer hailing from Bromley, who orchestrated a county line operation advertising crack cocaine and heroin through mass text messages, has been sentenced to jail.

Dean Beason, aged 41 and residing on Lincombe Road, was a key figure in the narcotics trade that targeted Gravesend as part of the infamous ‘Jeff Line.

Kent Police were alerted to the illegal operation after receiving reports of the mass texts. Promptly, officers were dispatched to Erith with the mission of apprehending the individual responsible for the ‘Jeff Line.

This determined pursuit led them to Corinthian Road in Erith on October 11 of the previous year, where they successfully intercepted a Peugeot 206.

Behind the wheel of the vehicle was none other than Dean Beason, and the incriminating phone that had been transmitting the illicit messages was found within his possession.

Furthermore, the diligent officers discovered two additional mobile phones and a package containing crack cocaine.

Subsequently, Beason was taken into custody, and a search of his residence yielded a significant haul. Authorities uncovered 20 deals of crack cocaine, eight heroin packages, electronic scales, £450 in cash, and a booklet containing details related to drug transactions.

Dean Beason was subsequently convicted on charges of being involved in the distribution of crack cocaine and heroin, in addition to two counts of possession of class A drugs with intent to supply.

On Thursday, January 18, he was sentenced to four years in prison by a judge presiding at Maidstone Crown Court.

Detective Constable Michael Nolan, commenting on the case, emphasized the unwavering commitment of investigators to halt drug dealers from infiltrating Kent with class A narcotics. He highlighted the meticulous planning that led to Beason’s capture and arrest, and urged other criminals considering similar activities to take heed of the consequences.

Nolan warned that individuals involved in drug trade could anticipate the same level of attention and dedication from Kent Police’s resolute enforcement teams.
