Both men were arrested on suspicion of possession of a Class A controlled drug, possession of a Class A controlled drug with intent to supply and being concerned in the supply of a Class A controlled drug.

“We would appeal to anyone with any information around drug dealing to contact police on 101. Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
