A 22-year-old man from Birmingham has been arrested for Class A drug offences as officers continue to crackdown on county lines drug dealing in Rugby.
At around 11.20am yesterday morning (Wednesday, 12 February), detectives from Rugby Proactive CID were on patrol and observed a man passing an item, believed to be drugs, to members of the public on Railway Terrace in Rugby.
Following this exchange, the man entered Rugby train station where he was arrested and detained.
Officers searched the man and he was found to be in possession of a significant quantity of what is believed to be crack cocaine.
The man was arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled (Class A) drug with intent to supply. He has been released on police bail while enquiries continue.
This arrest comes as detectives continue to crackdown on county lines drug dealing which is a type of organised crime where drug gangs from bigger cities sell drugs in smaller towns such as Rugby.
