Three arrested following drugs raid in Stratford

THREE arrests were made following the discovery of class A drugs during a raid in Stratford yesterday.

As part of a joint operation between Proactive Leamington CID, Warwickshire County Lines Disruption Team and Stratford Safer Neighbourhood Team, officers seized drugs and a number of mobile phones from a property in Yarranton Close.

Three men aged 36, 42 and 31 were found inside the property and arrested. They were later released while investigations continue.

Det Sgt Sarah Wolsey said “The warrant uncovered drugs and other potential evidence causing disruption to a suspected county lines drug operation.

“We are determined to bring callous criminals involved in the illegal supply of drugs to justice. To do this we rely on support from our communities in reporting suspicious behaviour.

“If you have any suspicions that a property is being used to sell drugs, or that a young and/or vulnerable individual may be getting involved with county lines drug dealing please report this to us. You can contact your local police station or phone 101.”

Anyone who has information that may assist investigations is asked to report this via the Warwickshire Police website or to call 101 quoting incident 201 of 15 September 2021.

The independent charity Crimestoppers can also be contacted anonymously on 0500 555 111 or online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
