A man from Catford was among three who have been jailed after drugs and a large knife were found when a silver Mercedes.

Heroin, cocaine and cannabis were all seized when the car was stopped in Chatham in July last year by police after they spotted it running a red light.

Dapo Obadare, 25, of Southend Lane in Catford, was found with uncovered wraps of cocaine and a 4.5 gram lump of heroin when he was searched.

He pleaded guilty to two counts of possessing Class A drugs with intent to supply, before being sentenced to five years in jail.

Matthew Banjo, 19, of Steven Close in Chatham, tried to run away after leaving the car. He was sentenced to two years for two counts of being concerned in the supply of a Class A drug and an assault he carried out as he tried to break free from police.

Ryan Fuller-Brent, 20, was the driver of the car and he was sentenced to five years in jail after pleading guilty to being concerned in the supply of a Class B drug and possessing a knife.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Stuart Clayton, said: "Banjo, Obadare and Fuller-Brent are hardened drug suppliers, intent on making illicit gains by pumping poison into the local community and taking advantage of vulnerable people.

"Kent Police takes the movement and supply of drugs in the county very seriously and works constantly to ensure those who break the law are brought before the courts."
