An Erith teenager has been charged with suspected drug dealing following his arrest in an alleyway.

At around 4pm on Monday, officers on patrol in Northfleet noticed several known drug users in an alleyway between Alfred Place and Perry Street.

They stopped a teenager who was also in the alleyway and following a search seized approximately 120 wraps of suspected crack cocaine and heroin, money and a phone.

A 14-year-old boy from Erith was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs and later charged with the offences.

He was remanded in custody to appear at Medway Magistrates’ Court later today (October 9).
