A teenager has been charged after officers seized a hunting knife and cocaine from him in Chatham.

At around 1pm on Tuesday (April 13), Kent Police officers became suspicious that drug dealing was taking place during a patrol in Gordon Road.

Officers detained a teenager and as a result of further enquiries, they are reported to have seized a hunting knife, a quantity of crack cocaine and cash.

Kent Police has since said that a 16-year-old boy from Croydon has been charged with possessing crack cocaine with intent to supply, being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine, possessing an offensive weapon and acquiring criminal property.

He appeared at Medway Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday (April 14) and was remanded in youth detention.
