JAILED: Jack Supple took ketamine before M20 crash near Maidstone

Thursday 24th June 2021

A MAIDSTONE motorist has been jailed for four years after more than 12,000 LSD deals were seized from his car.

Jack Supple (31) of Upper Street, Leeds, had taken ketamine before getting behind the wheel of his car and colliding into a barrier on the M20.

He was arrested and officers recovered perforated cardboard sheets containing LSD deals on the sun visor and inside a sports bag on the back seat.

A bag of ketamine was also found in the front passenger footwell.

A Kent Police spokesman said: “Patrols attended the coastbound carriageway of the motorway near the junction for Blue Bell Hill, following a report a vehicle had been driven erratically before coming to a halt.

“Our officers found the van stationary against a barrier on the hard shoulder and the driver, Jack Supple, admitted he had taken ketamine.

“His home address was also searched and more LSD deals were found along with around £2,000 in cash hidden inside a bottle.”

Supple was later charged with possession of class A drugs with intent to supply, possession of class B drugs and acquiring criminal property, namely the seized cash.

He pleaded guilty at Maidstone Crown Court and was sentenced to four years and six months in prison.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Tony Hatcher of Tonbridge CID said: “In total, our officers seized 12,342 LSD deals with an estimated street value of almost £21,000.

“This is a significant quantity of class A drugs and it is only right Supple is now serving a prison sentence.

“It is wrong that drug dealers profit from their criminality and we will be seeking confiscation of the cash seized on the search of his home address.”
