Tunbridge Wells: Arrests over massive cannabis haul

By David Gazet

Five people from Tunbridge Wells have been arrested in connection to the importation of cannabis worth tens of thousands of pounds.

Packages containing around six kilograms of the Class B drug were intercepted coming from Spain by UK Border Force officers in Birmingham earlier this year.

Yesterday they executed simultaneous search warrants at addresses in St John’s Road and St James’ Road in Tunbridge Wells, as well as in Bellfield Road, Pembury.

Three men and two women were arrested on suspicion of importing controlled drugs.

Two of the men were also arrested on suspicion of possessing Class A drugs after the warrants led to the discovery of several wraps believed to contain heroin.

All suspects have now been released, pending further investigation.
