Alexander Oni, 27, formerly of Brown Road, was originally arrested after £800 in cash, cannabis and two wraps of cocaine were found

A drug dealer has been sentenced to nearly four years imprisonment for supplying cocaine in Gravesend after a warrant was executed at his house.

Alexander Oni, 27 and formerly of Brown Road in Gravesend, was arrested in February 2017 after a search warrant at a property he was found in uncovered illegal drugs and cash.

He pleaded guilty to possessing cocaine and offering to supply cocaine at Canterbury Crown Court on March 7. On this same date, he was jailed for three years and nine months.

The court heard that on February 2 officers executed a search warrant at a property in Alexander Road.

He was found inside with £800 in cash in his pocket. Inside the same room were small amounts of cannabis and two wraps of cocaine.

All these items were seized, along with two mobile phones. Analysis of both phones showed that Oni had been dealing drugs in the area.

Detective constable Steven Brown, the investigating officer, said: “Oni was involved in a trade which targets and exploits the most vulnerable members of our society.

“He sought to use people’s addictions as a means to make money, an action which is entirely reprehensible. This case shows that we do proactively target drug dealers and are able to swiftly bring them before the courts to secure justice.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
