Ian Hughes 16th May, 2020

FOUR men were arrested after a police drugs raid in Stratford.

The men, aged, 22, 26, 27 and 34 were arrested in Brewery Street, on suspicion of the supply of controlled drugs.

Officers also seized a significant quantity of Class B drugs, with an estimated street value of £1,000. £4,000 in cash and drugs related paraphernalia was also found.

Two of the men have been released under investigation and two remain in custody at this time helping officers with their enquiries.

Det Insp Richard Brown said: “I hope our activity sends a strong message to those concerned in the supply of drugs that despite the Covid pandemic we will continue to target offenders and bring them to justice. It should also reassure the people of Stratford that we recognise the damage drug dealing causes our communities, and that we take all reports seriously.”

It was part of an operation to tackle drugs by Warwickshire Police’s Serious and Organised Crime team working with the Tactical Support Team.

Anyone with any information on drug dealing or suspicious activity in their area should contact Warwickshire Police on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
