icKent reports that eleven cocaine and heroin dealers have been sentenced for peddling drugs across Thanet after a massive police swoop.
Martin Beck, 51, from Westgate, was caught dealing heroin in front of his two daughters, aged 11 and 12. Others dealt wraps of deadly heroin to undercover police officers
Raids, part of Operation Pirate, were also carried out in London in August when 22 dealers were nabbed.
Beck and Derek Murtagh, 34, of Suffolk Avenue, Westgate, traded wraps of heroin for cigarettes with undercover police.
Ed: Suffolk Avenue faces the Canterbury road adjacent to the Ursuline College. A Heroin problem was visible in Westgate. I've removed used needles and a spoon from in front of the St Mildred's Bay toilets and one only had to look at the railway tracks at the station to see the detritus. Now cleaned-up.
