Two arrested in drugs raids
Two men have been arrested after after a double drugs strike in
The police team used a drugs dog as they raided a flat in
Scotney Gardens in St Peters Street, on Friday morning, November 9,
and arrested a 24-year-old man for possession with intent to supply
An amount of cannabis and a convertible BMW car was seized
before the team moved on to a site in Dickens Road, Ringlestone,
where they found a number of wraps of heroin and arrested
a 32 year-old man for possession with intent to
supply the drug.
Police Constable James Arnold from Kent Police, who coordinated the
operation, said: “Drugs tend to go hand in hand with other offences
in the area, such as theft, and anti-social behaviour. Making
arrests and seizing drugs, as we have done today, keeps the
pressure on people who are involved in drug crime in Maidstone and
we will be keeping up that pressure.”
He added: “On many occasions, action like this is as a result of
information we receive from the community and the feedback we have
received from local residents today has been overwhelmingly
positive. We are very grateful for the support we receive from the
public, and I would encourage people to continue to report
suspicious behaviour to us so we can deprive drugs dealers of trade
