Three people have been arrested after officers executed two drugs warrants at properties in Rugby yesterday (Tuesday 14 December).
At around 11am, warrants were conducted on Arnold Street and Park Road, and a car was stopped on the A5.
As a result, a significant amount of class A and class B drugs, including suspected cocaine, MDMA and cannabis with an estimated value of more than £50,000, were seized from the properties, as well as £7000 in cash.
A 17-year-old boy from Rugby who was stopped while travelling on the A5 in a Mercedes was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply. He has been released under investigation.
A 31-year-old man from Rugby was arrested at a property on Park Road on suspicion of possession with intent to supply and for being concerned in supplying controlled drugs. He has been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
A 26-year-old man from Telford was also arrested in connection with the operation and has been charged and remanded for court.
Following the warrants, Det Sgt Alan Gardner from Rugby Proactive CID, said: “We’re really pleased with yesterday’s result, which has enabled a significant quantity of illegal drugs to be taken off the streets.
"This has been a collective effort to understand, collate and proactively target those involved. Rugby Proactive Team will continue to tackle and prevent the supply of drugs in our communities.
"We hope these warrants have shown that we take this seriously and will continually target and disrupt those involved in drugs offences in Rugby.”
