YEOVIL NEWS: Police act on information from public about drug dealing

POLICE carried out a search warrant under the misuse of drugs act at a property in Yeovil on Friday (July 28, 2017) and two men were arrested.

Officers from the Yeovil Beat Team carried out the warrant following information about suspected drugs supply at the address.

Local beat manager PC Quirk said: “There had been lots of reports of people coming and going at all times of the day and night, disturbing neighbours. We were also getting reports of drug dealing in the street near-by.”

Officers carried out an investigation in the lead up to the warrant, which lead to two men, aged 28 and 29, being arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class B drugs. .

PC Quirk added: “I want to thank the local community for providing information about the suspected drug activities in the area.

“I know it’s a cliché but it’s true – you are our eyes and ears. If you talk to us about what’s happening in your community, we do listen and we will take action.

“No one wants to live in and around drug crime and we don’t want anyone to have to put up with the noise, disturbance and anti-social behaviour that goes with it.”

If you have information about suspected drug dealing or any crime in your area, you can pass on information by going to the police’s website or by calling 101.
