Medway drug dealer jailed for two years

A drug dealer, who hid ecstasy and cannabis in a Gillingham garden, has been jailed for two years.

27 year-old Ryan Doe stored the drugs outside his home in First Avenue but, during a police search last October, they were discovered sealed in containers.

In an investigation led by Kent Police, around 450 grams of a substance, later tested as MDMA was seized, along with £500 and a quantity of cannabis.

Doe was initially granted bail but then on 5 November, 2015 was arrested again after being found with drugs at another address.

On this occasion officers searched a property in Grove Road in Chatham.

Doe was found inside, and police seized a further 88 grams of cannabis.

Deal bags, a tick list of contacts and scales were also found.

Doe was remanded into custody before appearing at Maidstone Crown Court, where he pleaded guilty to possessing Class A drugs with intent to supply, as well as two charges of possessing cannabis with intent to supply.
On Tuesday, Doe was sentenced to two years in prison.

Detective Constable Stuart Clayton said: 'Doe was still dealing in drugs when on bail, but unfortunately for him his disregard and contempt for the law has now caught up with him. We were able to provide clear evidence of his involvement in the supply of both ecstasy and cannabis, leaving him with little choice but to plead guilty in court.

'This is another success for our Operation Jupiter team, but I would also like to stress that it remains important that residents also continue to play their role in helping us keep communities safe, so please remember to report any suspicious behaviour.'
