A MAN from Medway has been jailed for helping to supply £6m worth of cocaine to Kent's streets.

Kieren Mitchell, of Roosevelt Avenue, Chatham - who was part of a gang of nine from across Kent - was arrested following an intelligence led policing operation by officers from The Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate.

The 30-year-old has been sentenced to five years in prison after admitting conspiracy to supply cocaine. 

Other people arrested in the drugs ring - which was found to be supplying 94% pure cocaine - were from Canterbury, Broadstairs and Herne Bay.

They will serve up to 32 years in prison combined.

Detective Constable Martin Lacey of The Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate said: "This was a highly organised criminal network and the people within the network were pocketing thousands by selling to high end dealers across the East of the county.

"To connect the nine to the drug supply ring took many hours of investigative work in which officers trawled through a huge amount of mobile phone data and other intelligence which had been painstakingly gathered.

"We have been successful in taking millions of pounds worth of drugs off the streets and will continue to relentlessly pursue those intent in profiting from the death and misery caused by illegal drugs."
