Elvis Stirkis was jailed for 31 months

A Margate dealer who was caught with a plastic egg full of class A drugs has been jailed.

Elvis Stirkis, 20, of Norfolk Road was arrested after Kent Police officers suspected he was dealing drugs in an alleyway not far from his home.

The officers, who were out on patrol on September 22, found Stirkis holding a plastic egg containing heroin and cocaine. The drugs were seized along with a mobile phone and cash.

Following a search of his home address more cash was seized and a list containing information that investigators found to be connected to the supply of controlled drugs.

Stirkis pleaded guilty to possessing criminal property and two counts of possessing a controlled class A drug and was sentenced to 31 months in jail at Canterbury Crown Court on Tuesday.

Detective sergeant Clive Horne said: “We will do everything we can to tackle drug dealing in Thanet and identify those responsible.

“Stirkis will now spend time in prison where he has an opportunity to reflect on his actions and consider his future.”
