Christopher Knowlson, aged 28, of Springhead Parkway, admitted cocaine and MDMA offences

A Gravesend man has been jailed for four years after a drugs raid in Beckenham.

Christopher Knowlson, aged 28, of Springhead Parkway, Northfleet, Gravesend, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply cocaine and possession with intent to supply MDMA and was sentenced to four years imprisonment at Croydon Crown Court.

On Friday, February 27, officers from the Crime Squad at Bromley Police Station executed a search warrant at an address in Lloyd House, Calverley Close, Beckenham. Officers recovered a large amount of cocaine and MDMA hidden inside two children’s ‘Batman’ and ‘Mr Tumble Something Special’ rucksacks in a wardrobe at the address.

Officers later attended an address in Springhead Parkway, Northfleet in connection with the investigation, seizing drugs, drug-related paraphernalia and around £1,600 in cash. Knowlson was arrested at the address on suspicion of possession with intent to supply cocaine and MDMA.

Knowlson was subsequently charged with possession with intent to supply cocaine and possession with intent to supply MDMA; both charges relate to the drugs recovered from Lloyd House, Calverley Close, Beckenham.

Detective Sergeant Gary Head, from the Bromley Crime Squad, said: “This positive and robust police activity demonstrates that drug dealing with the borough of Bromley will not be tolerated and those responsible are being targeted.”
