Police have arrested three people as part of a crackdown on class A drugs in Worthing.
Warrants were executed at homes in Mendip Road and Radnor Road on Friday (February 7th) as part of the operation.
A 50-year-old woman and a 64-year-old man were arrested at Mendip Road on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs. Both were questioned before being released on bail until April 29th.
A 35-year-old man was arrested at Radnor Road on suspicion of possession of a Class A drug. He was questioned before being released on bail until April 30th while further inquiries are carried out.
Chief Inspector Jo Banks, the District Commander for Adur and Worthing, said: “The operation was part of my commitment to target those involved in the illegal supply of drugs.
“Drug use and the associated criminality carried out to fund an individual’s habit are incredibly impactive on our community and we will continue to target those who are at the heart of that supply.”
Inspector Allan Lowe said: “Illegal drug use causes harm and impacts on overall crime levels as a number of people commit crime to fund their drug habit.
“We want people to feel safe in their local communities so Neighbourhood Policing Team Officers will continue to target the illegal supply of drugs across the area and we ask for local people to contact us with any information they may have.”
