Drugs and cash seized during police raid

by Tom Martin (February 2021)

A man from Netherton has been arrested after drugs and £4,000 in cash were found in a police raid.

Following a warrant yesterday afternoon (17th Feb) just after 5pm at a home on Marie Curie Avenue, officers have arrested a 32 year old man. 

During a search of the house, officers recovered a large quantity of suspected cocaine and cannabis along with around £4000 in cash.

The occupant, a 32 year old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A and B drugs and possession of criminal property. He was taken to custody for questioning.

If you know anyone involved in drug crime, please get in touch. This can often lead to more serious violence and we must put a stop to it before it is too late - call 101, report via social media or report anonymously @CrimestoppersUK. #OpTarget
