Haverhill house raided as part of police operation to combat drug dealing




Police have made two arrests after three drug warrants were executed in the west of the county last week - one of them in Haverhill.

Officers conducted the Haverhill warrant at a property on Betony Walk on Wednesday morning.

Two males, in their 40s, were found in the house and although an extensive search was made no drugs were located.

The day before officers conducted a warrant at a property on Bell Lane in Barton Mills where a quantity of cannabis was seized. As a result a 35 year-old man received a caution.

Both suspects were taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning and subsequently released under investigation pending further enquiries.

PC Christien Williams from Mildenhall police said: “This operation targeted those who are involved in drug-related activity in the west of the county and beyond.

“This was an intelligence-led operation with a number of officers working together in order to disrupt and pursue criminals, to protect our communities from harm.

“We remain committed to disrupting drug activity in the west of the county and across the rest of the county, and anyone found dealing in drugs will be dealt with robustly.

“The supply and dealing of illegal drugs will not be tolerated and residents can be reassured that any information passed to police will be acted on.”

Anyone concerned about drug related activity in their area should contact police on 101.
