Police have recovered drugs after a warrant was executed in a Northumberland town.

Officers from the Alnwick Neighbourhood Policing team have carried out a warrant this morning, (Thursday, March 10), in Alnwick to target those suspected of supplying illegal drugs.

A quantity of Class A and B drugs were recovered and a 25-year-old man was arrested. He remains in police custody.

The activity is part of an on-going, intelligence lead initiative which will disrupt criminal activity, protect vulnerable people and make the town an even safer place to live and work. 

Neighbourhood Inspector, Paul Truscott, said: "There's no place for drug use or supply in Alnwick and we will take positive action against those suspected of being involved.

"Drugs cause misery in communities and the people targeting the vulnerable and most at risk with drugs supply will be identified and dealt with.

"While we don't have a particular issue with drugs in the town we will always act on information received to ensure it remains a safe place to live."

Police can be contacted on 101 ext 69191 - information can be passed on anonymously if necessary.
