Man arrested and illegal drugs seized after warrant executed on Sudbury property during co-ordinated day of police action

Further drug seizures were carried out in Sudbury during a proactive day of action against crime and anti-social behaviour.

A warrant was executed on a property in Cavendish Way on Wednesday, June 24, when a quantity of class A drugs and class B drugs were recovered.

A 25-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs, before being released under investigation, pending further inquiries.

Three others were searched at the property, with one woman receiving a cannabis warning.

The area was previously targeted in May as part of a three-week crackdown, which led to the seizure of £3,000 of drugs and 13 arrests or cautions for drug-related offences.

During the co-ordinated day of action last week, police also carried out targeted enforcement on the roads in Sudbury, Haverhill and the surrounding areas, resulting in 84 speeding offences being detected and a further 10 motorists being warned.

Officers also arrested a man on suspicion of drug driving and seized one vehicle that had been on the road without insurance.

Insp Kevin Horton, locality inspector for Sudbury and Haverhill, said: “This was a very productive operation.

“Not only was it beneficial in terms of disruption, it also gave a clear indication to the local community about how determined we are to address the concerns they have raised to the local police, relating to criminality and anti-social behaviour.

“It was also a very useful exercise in engaging with many law-abiding residents, who were able to see first-hand some of the proactive work we conduct in relation to this type of activity.”
