Detective Inspector Alan Townsend from Nuneaton Proactive CID said "We are pleased that our officers have been able to disrupt this ruthless form of criminal activity.
Drug dealers prey on the most vulnerable and have no concern for the misery and devastation that they cause to individuals, families and communities. They are motivated only by greed.
Warwickshire Police will continue to do all we can to target those involved in the supply of drugs and bring offenders to justice. To do this we rely on support from our communities in reporting suspicious behaviour. "
Officers are appealing for anyone with information to come forward by calling 101 or reporting to via the Warwickshire Police website, quoting incident 37 of 17 May 2021. The independent charity Crimestoppers can also be contacted anonymously on 0500 555 111 or online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org
