A MAN was arrested and suspected class A drugs seized in Leamington.

Police were patrolling on George Street on Tuesday (August 11) when they spotted a suspected drug deal.

The 32-year-old man from Coventry was arrested on suspicion of possession of class A drugs with intent to supply.

He has been released under investigation while enquiries continue.




Det Sgt Gavin Hampton said: “We work hard to disrupt crime by removing illegal drugs from the street, and tackling those we suspect are responsible for supplying drugs.

“Drug crime has a hugely detrimental effect on communities so we hope this type of proactive policing reassures the community that we are taking action.


“Cracking down on drug crime is a priority for the force and I would like to assure the public that we will continue to record and act on all intelligence received. We will not hesitate to take robust action when necessary.”

Anyone with information about the production, supply and use of drugs can call Warwickshire Police on 101 or call 0800 555 111 to speak to Crimestoppers anonymously.
