Three arrested after warrant in Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury Police executed a warrant under the misuse of drugs act yesterday (11 July) at three addresses in the Ditherington area of Shrewsbury.

The local community raised concerns and police acted on intelligence received to secure the arrests.

Three people were arrested for drugs offences and police recovered over £1000 in cash, a substantial amount of suspected class-A drugs and various items of associated drugs paraphernalia.

Sergeant Keith Steele of Shrewsbury Safer Neighbourhood Team said: "We are keen to show those involved in the supply of drugs that they will not be tolerated in our neighbourhoods.

"Their activities cause our communities nothing but harm and we are committed to tackling their activities swiftly and decisively.

 "We rely on the support of our communities to tell us what is going on in your neighbourhood and I would like to encourage everyone to report any suspicious behaviour to us."
