Teenager arrested in Gravesend drugs bust

A 15-year-old boy was among those arrested by police in a raid that targeted drug-dealing in Gravesend recently.

The arrests took place on Monday, October 5, after an investigation by police into illegal narcotic dealing in the Kent town.

Around 7pm, officers from Kent Police gathered on Milton Road in Gravesend, and conducted a raid of a flat on the street.

Inside they found 40 “suspected drug wraps” along with “phones and money”.

They subsequently made three arrests at the scene in connection to believed drug dealing in the area.

A spokesperson for Kent Police offered further details in a public statement released Friday afternoon (October 9), revealing one of those arrested was just 15-years-old:

“A 20-year-old man and a 34-year-old man both from Gravesend, and a 15-year-old boy from London, have been bailed until 30 October pending further enquiries,” they said.
