Officers from the Swale Local Policing Team have arrested a man on suspicion of supplying class A drugs, after they became suspicious of a car parked in a layby at around 16:45pm on Tuesday (24th July) afternoon.
The police constables were on a routine patrol and travelling towards Sittingbourne on the A249 when they became suspicious of the vehicle, which was on the other side of the carriageway.
The officers turned off the A249 and re-joined to travel in the opposite direction. They then pulled into the layby, close to the Sheppey Crossing, and spoke with the occupant of the vehicle.
A search then uncovered a quantity of suspected cocaine and a 37-year-old man from Sittingbourne was arrested on suspicion of possessing a class A drug with intent to supply.
He has since been released pending further enquiries.
