Gravesend cocaine dealer Brian Warrington gets three years after selling to undercover police officer
A GRAVESEND drug dealer has been jailed for three years after being caught supplying cocaine to an undercover police officer.
Brian Warrington, 24, of Poplar Avenue, sold a single wrap of the class A drug to a plain-clothed officer for £20 in Gloucester Road on March 13.
The following day, again in the same place, Warrington sold two wraps of cocaine for £80.
At the final meeting in Gloucester Road on March 22 the officer purchased three wraps of cocaine for £80.
Forensic tests later revealed the contents contained paracetemol.
Warrington was arrested on August 8 this year which was the culmination of a five-month operation.
On October 9 at at Maidstone Crown Court he was sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty to being concerned in the supply of cocaine between November 2012 and April 2013.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Chris Weatherstone, of Kent Police, said: "This investigation involved an officer working undercover to get to the heart of a local drug dealing network in Gravesham.
"Whilst the quantities of Class A drugs might have been small, disrupting this network can only be a good thing as we look to keep drugs off our streets.
"The sentence reflects the seriousness of the crimes committed and Kent Police will continue to take action to identify and target such dealers, disrupting their activity and bringing them to justice."
