Man and boy arrested on suspicion of dealing class A drugs in Nuneaton

Two people were arrested on suspicion of dealing class A drugs in Nuneaton last Thursday (24 January).

A 16-year-old boy from Coventry and 25-year-old man from Wolverhampton were detained on suspicion of possession with intent to supply heroin and crack cocaine.

The pair were arrested after officers from the Nuneaton Offender Management Unit carried out a welfare check on the vulnerable occupants of a property in the Collycroft area of Nuneaton.

They were arrested at the address. Officers also seized heroin and crack cocaine with an estimated street value of £400 and a quantity of cash.

The boy was released under investigation and the man was detained in connection with offences in the West Midlands.

Detective Sergeant Chris Cook from the Nuneaton Offender Management Unit said: "Drug dealers often target vulnerable people. In the offender management unit we are extremely proactive in engaging with vulnerable people; checking on their welfare and ensuring they are not being exploited.

"On this occasion our proactivity led to the seizure of drugs and the arrest of two men."

Anyone with information that could help police with their ongoing enquiries or any information about the supply of drugs in Warwickshire should call 101. Alternatively, information can be provided anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
