Two people were arrested for drugs offences after warrants were carried out in Tunbridge Wells and Southborough

05 February 2014

 

Two people have been arrested as part of a drugs operation in Tunbridge Wells.

On Friday, January 31, police carried out two warrants under the Misuse of Drugs Act in Dudley Road, Tunbridge Wells and Bright Ridge in Southborough. Substances were seized at both addresses and will be forensically examined. 

In Bright Ridge, a 35-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply cocaine. She was later released on bail until Thursday, April 24, while in Dudley Road a 53-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of supplying a controlled drug and possession of heroin. She was released on bail until Thursday, March 6.

Chief Insp Dave Pate, District Commander for Tunbridge Wells said: "As police officers we see first-hand the appalling impact that drugs can have on users, their families, and on communities in which drugs are dealt. We proactively pursue those that are involved in the supply and use of controlled substances and will work to get the strongest possible prison sentences for those involved.

"If we can reduce drug use then more often than not that helps to reduce other crime that is associated with drug use, such as theft, anti-social behaviour and violence for example."

If you suspect drug use call the police or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
