Three further arrests confirmed in connection with drug activity in Sudbury as police crackdown continues
Three more people were arrested in connection with drug offences in Sudbury last week, as part of an ongoing targeted police operation against drug-related crime in the area.
Officers from Suffolk Police executed a warrant at an address in Beaty Road on Thursday, under section 23 of the Misuse of Drugs Act, and seized a quantity of suspected class A and B drugs.
Three people were then detained and taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning.
A 30-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs.
Meanwhile, two men, aged 22 and 23, respectively, were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of drugs.
All three people have now been released under investigation, pending further police inquiries.
In a separate incident in Sudbury, police executed a warrant at an address in Weavers Lane on Thursday morning.
After officers discovered a small amount of cannabis – a class B substance – within the property, a 49-year-old man was given a formal warning.
The warrants come as the latest action of Operation Benin, a crackdown on drug activity in the Sudbury area during the coronavirus lockdown.
Thousands of pounds of illegal drugs and cash have been seized since the operation launched in April, with dozens of stop-searches and a number of warrants executed at addresses in the town.
