Four men, including one from Margate, have been charged as part of an investigation into the importation and distribution of class A drugs.

Detectives from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate are leading the case and the charges follow on from a number of search warrants that were carried out at homes across the country on Wednesday 18 October.

The offending is believed to have taken place between March 2020 and December 2021. The planned search warrants were carried out in Westbrook Avenue, Margate, Orpington, Sunderland and Stockton-on-Tees.

Nine people were arrested and interviewed, a 40-year-old woman has since been released on police bail and two men aged 33, one aged 30 and another aged 35, all remain under investigation.

On Wednesday 18 October four men were charged with conspiracy to import and supply class A drugs:

  • Addison Curtis, 36, of Westbrook Avenue in Margate
  • Danny Smith, 31, of Berrylands in Orpington
  • Christian Lee, 49, of Ravenna Road, Sunderland
  • Nikki Fewsdale, 41, of Meadow Court, Norton, Stockton-on-Tees.

All four have been remanded in custody and are due to appear in court today (October 19).


  1. Yes Steve. No working class or middle class people take drugs. Neither do people who are not politicians.

      • Yep Steve, we get it, you are a Labour supporter, well done, however the cost of living crises has been caused by Covid, the illegal invasion in Ukraine, global inflation and the mass illegal immigration sweeping the world. If Labour or the Liberals had been in power the outcome would have been no different. Do you also blame the government if you forget to brush your teeth or
        Your kids misbehave? Get a grip.

  2. The usual tough on drugs/disrupt county lines gangs for about 3 hours, until they are replaced routine.

    The sheepish looking police and crime commissioner interviewed on one of the local news shows the other day pretty much admitted it is all for show when asked if they can ever stop it & her saying unlikely, because they never target the people running it & just round up a load of easy collars, bottom of the barrel foot soldiers in these week long drives for publicity.

  3. Nice to see a list of good old English names who have been charged. I wonder where the bigots in Thanet would want them to be deported to?
