Drugs and cash were discovered during the arrest of a man in Ramsgate following a police pursuit yesterday (October 3).

Kent Police officers identified what they believed to be a stolen car in Church Street, Broadstairs.

Officers pursued the car, which failed to stop until it reached Hardres Street in Ramsgate several minutes later.

The suspect ran from police and was chased on foot until he was arrested in Brunswick Street at around 7pm.

The 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, driving whilst disqualified and under the influence of alcohol, driving without insurance and theft of a motor vehicle.

He was also arrested on suspicion of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply after officers discovered drugs and cash during his arrest.

The man from Broadstairs remains in police custody whilst enquiries continue.

  1. Well done in getting another death dealer off our streets, but I am sure he or others will be back again in no time at all to continue this illegal trade. This greedy government in pulling in the purse strings on police has caused the increase in criminal activity. These criminals know the chances of getting caught are worth the risk in carrying on, and as soon as one scum bag is taken down another pops up. I wonder why burglaries are on the rise! Huh, could it possibly be because drug addicts and users need money to pay these death dealers that they are not prepared to legally work for? We need more police on our streets than ever before if we are ever going to reduce this, that is so obvious to us.
