A MAN was arrested after a drugs warrant was executed in Redditch.

Police officers went to a house in Forge Mill Road on Wednesday, February 5 after obtaining a warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

They discovered a quantity of what is believed to be cannabis, along with scales and bags.
A 23-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply, and has been released on police bail pending further inquiries.

Sergeant Richard Field of West Mercia Police said: “Drug dealing is a high priority for us, and as part of that, we welcome all information provided by the public.

“In September we launched a new three-year drug strategy designed to tackle the impact of drugs on communities.

“A key component is the reduction of supply and demand achieved through the identification and dismantling of trafficking and dealer networks, and the warrant executed in Forge Mill Road is an example of this.

“We will continue to execute drugs warrants and other operations in order to disrupt the activity of drug dealers, and want to encourage people to pass on any suspicions or concerns they have.

“They can contact police directly by ringing the non-emergency number 101 or ring the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111. We take all reports seriously, investigate them thoroughly and if appropriate act on the information provided.”
