Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

Four warrants were executed across Chippenham and Corsham today which led to the arrest of four people on suspicion of drug offences.

More than 30 officers from across the Force executed the warrants this morning (6/2) at addresses in Loyalty Street, Cherhill Way, Long Close Avenue and Maitland Close.

The warrants were carried out as a result of information provided by the local community regarding suspected drug dealing.

Two women, aged in their 20s, and two men in their 30s, were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs and possession of criminal property.

They all currently remain in custody in Melksham for further questioning. 

During the warrants, a Range Rover was seized along with designer goods including electricals and clothing, and enquiries are ongoing.

Neighbourhood Sgt Rich Marshall said: “These warrants involved officers from multiple departments across the Force including Neighbourhood officers, Community Tasking Team, the Dedicated Crime Team, Dog Section, CID and our Digital Investigations & Intelligence Unit – a lot of work behind the scenes is involved in successfully executing warrants of this nature which of course would not have been possible without the information supplied by members of the public. 

“The public really do play an important role in helping us tackle drug dealing within our communities and I hope today’s results not only provide reassurance that we are fully committed to dealing with illegal drug supply and will take action on information we receive, but that it also encourages members of the public to continue to report their concerns to us.”

Insp James Brain added: “The negative impact that drug activity can have on a neighbourhood should not be underestimated – the supply of drugs is often associated with anti-social behaviour, violence and the use of weapons, and this simply will not be tolerated.

“Today’s warrants have been really successful and we will continue to target those involved in illegal drugs within our community.”

To report concerns, call 101.
