A suspected drug dealer has been charged after officers stopped a car in Broadstairs.

Shortly after midnight yesterday (April 25), two local response officers were on patrol in St Peter’s Road when they saw a vehicle veer into oncoming traffic.

The vehicle was stopped and searched and items including a number of bags of suspected Class A drugs, as well as cannabis, were found and seized.

Following enquiries Desislava Bancheva, of Carlton Road, Manchester was charged with possessing cocaine with intent to supply, failing to provide a sample for analysis when requested to do so and possession of cannabis.

Ms Bancheva, 28, appeared before Folkestone Magistrates’ Court at an initial hearing today (April 26) and was remanded in custody to appear before Canterbury Crown Court on Tuesday 28 May.


  1. Did this man that was arrested identify as a women when in court or was there a man arrested as well as Ms Bancheva?

  2. 1 dealer down, 100+ available replacements.
    Why don’t police services target the users ? No demand=supply not needed.
    I did mention the user clamp down idea to a uniformed person paid by tax payers but was told to crack on fellow…

    • It would be completely unrealistic, there is already times when custody suits are completely full and the accused well out number the officers… then what should the punishment be? Because jail time for every person caught smoking some weed and not harming anybody would then take up a higher number of prison cells than we have in total in England… the focus for that space, time and money should be for those who purposely inflict pain on others, there are some awfully cruel humans out there, why punish thoes who are for some reason using and only being cruel to themselves?

    • Not enough prison space in the country to lock up all the users. Better to legalize it, tax it, and use the money for NHS et cetera
