Kent Police officers on patrol in Northfleet seized a quantity of suspected cocaine after they became suspicious of a car travelling in the town.

The officers were travelling in London Road at around 9.50pm on Thursday, December 27, when they spotted a car travelling in the opposite direction which they believed was linked to supplying drugs.

The officers performed a U-turn and requested the vehicle stop but it is reported to have accelerated away before coming to a stop in Cross Road.

A subsequent search uncovered two bags of suspected cocaine, a baton and a quantity of cash.

A 33-year-old man from Strood was arrested on suspicion of possessing a class A drug with intent to supply, possessing an offensive weapon, driving while disqualified and driving with no insurance.

He remains in custody as enquiries continue.
