Drugs warrant executed at Stratford house

Police officers in Stratford-upon-Avon have today (7 September 2017) executed a warrant at a property on Childs Close.

The warrant was carried out following concerns raised by community members about the use and supply of drugs in the area.

Items of drug paraphernalia and mobile phones were seized at the house and these will be examined by officers.

A 22-year-old man from Stratford-upon-Avon was arrested at the property on suspicion of assault following a separate incident on Childs Close on 30 August.

Sergeant Simon Ryan from the Stratford-upon-Avon Safer Neighbourhood Team said: 'Information from the public helps us to build up a picture of the issues affecting our communities and target those responsible.
