A “substantial quantity” of heroin and crack cocaine was seized in a drugs bust in Stratford-upon-Avon yesterday (Tuesday) as police continue to target the town’s Class A market.
Two men, aged 18 and 48, were arrested during the raid at a property in South Green Drive.
Residents saw two police vans, two police cars, and two unmarked cars descend on the street in what was the second drugs bust in the area in a fortnight.
The men were taken into custody at Leamington Spa police station for questioning, but were later released on police bail until 5th December pending further enquiries.
