Alert message sent 11/12/2019 12:06:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police


Officers stopped a car they had suspicions about in Warminster yesterday and found drugs in the vehicle. 

Around 1pm on Tuesday 10 December, police stopped the white Audi A1 on Highbury Park in the town; during their checks they could smell cannabis coming from the vehicle.

Officers then carried out a search finding a quantity of cannabis and suspected cocaine. 

The driver, a local 40-year-old man, was arrested and a search of his address discovered quantities of cannabis and suspected cocaine along with bundles of cash, believed to be multiple thousands of pounds, and a set of scales. 

The man was arrested on suspicion of drug driving, possession of Class A and B drugs and possession with intent to supply Class A and B drugs.   He has been released under investigation while our enquiries continue. 

Sgt Will Ayres said:  "This is an excellent example of good work within the Community Policing Team resulting in a quantity of drugs being removed from the streets of Wiltshire.
"Criminality of this type will not be tolerated and will be targeted through the use of proactive patrols as we continue to take a robust approach towards illegal drug use."

If you have concerns about suspected drug use in your neighbourhood, please call 101 and report it.  You can also do so anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
