Three suspected drug dealers have been charged following a series of raids across Bexley earlier this week.

Warrants were executed by Kent Police officers in Woolwich and Thamesmead during the early hours of Wednesday, July 17.

The operation targeted suspected members of a county lines drug network in the Gravesend area.

Following the successful raids, Prince Okachukwu, 22, of Salmon Road, Belvedere; Luther Parker, 19, of Kentlea Road, Thamesmead; and Che Williams, 18, of Newmarsh Road, Thamesmead were arrested.

All three have since been charged with conspiring to supply heroin and crack cocaine between April and July of this year.

Each suspect was remanded in custody and appeared before Medway Magistrates' Court yesterday.

At the hearing they were further remanded in custody and will next appear at Woolwich Crown Court on Thursday, August 15.
