Officers from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate have been investigating the trade of large quantities of cocaine and ketamine, estimated to be worth hundreds of thousands of pounds.
On Tuesday 9 November 2021, around 500 grams of ketamine was seized from a van parked in Geneva Avenue, Gillingham.
Robert Shearmur, aged 33, was arrested on the same day, at his home in Breach Lane, Lower Halstow, Sittingbourne.
