A Gravesend drug dealer has been jailed for three years after an undercover police sting.

Brian Warrington, of Poplar Avenue, pleaded guilty to supplying cocaine between November 2012 and April 2013.

He was arrested on August 8 following a five month plain-clothed operation where he offered to supply cocaine to an undercover officer.

Warrington was sentenced at Maidstone Crown Court on October 9. The court heard Warrington supplied cocaine on three occasions. On March 13, the undercover officer met Warrington in Gloucester Road and bought a single wrap of cocaine for £20.

The following day, again in the same place, Warrington sold two wraps of cocaine for £80.

Investigating officer Det Con Chis Weatherstone said: “This investigation involved an officer working undercover to get to the heart of a local drug dealing network in Gravesham.

“Whilst the quantities of Class A drugs might have been small, disrupting this network can only be a good thing as we look to keep drugs off our streets.

“The sentence reflects the seriousness of the crimes committed and Kent Police will continue to take action to identify and target such dealers, disrupting their activity and bringing them to justice.”
