Tunbridge Wells Drug Dealer Given Prison Sentence

The police have continued their campaign to remove class A drug dealers from the streets of Tunbridge Wells, with another prison sentence being issued.

On Friday 19th May 2023, officers from the town’s community policing team were on patrol when they saw a car they suspected was being used in the supply of cocaine. The vehicle was stopped and after speaking to the driver, Dimitar Atanasov, a search was completed under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

The constables located a magnetic box fixed under the driver’s seat which contained 13 wraps of cocaine. They also seized £455 in cash and Atanasov was arrested. He was later charged with possessing class A drugs with intent to supply.

The dealer pleaded guilty at Maidstone Crown Court and on Wednesday 23rd August, the 41-year-old was sentenced to two years and three months’ imprisonment.

Detective Constable Katie Gregory, of West Kent CID, said ‘Another visiting drug dealer has been brought to justice by the local officers of Tunbridge Wells’.
