Two people were arrested on drugs offences today following an operation by Police in Stratford-upon-Avon.
During the operation officers used the latest technology, sending up a drone to help gather intelligence.
The arrests come as part of the police’s efforts to combat county lines drugs trafficking, where drug distribution networks from larger towns and cities attempt to establish markets in smaller county towns.
A male from Birmingham and a female from Leamington were arrested on suspicion of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply.
Sgt Simon Ryan from Stratford Police said: “Our use of the drone demonstrates the kind of resources we have here in Stratford to combat crime and warns criminals that we will find them using every means we have available.”
