Man arrested as county lines crackdown continues

Rugby Editorial 10th Oct, 2019   0

AN ONGOING police crackdown on county lines drug gangs has resulted in the arrest of a 57-year-old Rugby man.

He was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of drugs during a raid on a house in Park Road on Tuesday (October 8).

Officers also seized a substance believed to be heroin, and a mobile phone.

The man has since been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

Det Sgt Heidi Twynham from the Rugby Offender Management Unit said: “We continue to tackle the problem of class A drugs making their way on to the streets of Rugby and we will continue to take action against those we believe to be involved.

“Our message is clear – if you come to Rugby to deal drugs you are not welcome and we are looking out for you.

“We need the public to continue to report suspicious activity and help us tackle county lines crime. The information you provide may be the missing piece of the jigsaw that helps us to arrest a criminal, seize drugs or protect a vulnerable person.”

Call police on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
