Detective Constable Martin Aird, of Kent Police’s County Lines and Gangs Team, said: ‘Two more county line dealers are starting well deserved prison sentences. Until they are inevitably tracked down, these criminals bring misery to the communities of Kent while seeking to make a considerable profit.

‘We are always alert to new lines when they start offering class A drugs for sale, and it is only a matter of time before we identify who is behind the phone number. They are then swiftly and robustly brought to justice and this should serve as a warning to any others who seek to follow their example.’
