Three men and a teenage boy have been arrested by Kent Police officers investigating the supply of drugs in Thanet.

Patrols were called to reports of suspected drug dealing in Biddenden Close, Margate at 1.24am on Monday (February 17) where they arrested a 17-year-old boy of no fixed address.

A vehicle spotted driving away as police arrived was then tracked down by patrols who subsequently arrested three men from London, aged 20, 21 and 23. Cash and mobiles, believed to be linked to drug dealing, were seized.

The four people, who were all arrested on suspicion of being concerned in supplying controlled drugs, were released on bail while enquiries continue.
