Police drugs op in Tonbridge
by Angela Cole
Drugs dogs joined neighbourhood police on Friday night for
an operation to tackle drugs offences in Tonbridge.
Officers who visited pubs across the
town targetting people suspected of being in
possession of drugs, were joined by police drugs dogs and
officers from the force’s Special Constabulary.
In total, four men were given warnings for cannabis, after
the drugs dog had sniffed out a small amount on them. A
20-year-old man from Tunbridge Wells was given a police caution
after being found in possession of amphetamine.
Sgt Mark Ginsberg said: “We regularly run this operation in
Tonbridge and surrounding areas and it is designed to locate people
who are in possession of drugs, seize those drugs, and deal with
the offenders. Tonbridge is a safe place to live and to socialise,
and taking drugs off the streets makes the town even safer. We will
continue to run this operation, especially in the lead up to the
Christmas and New Year festivities.”
