A SUSPECTED drug dealer has been arrested in Rugby following a police raid.

Officers from Rugby Proactive CID executed a warrant at a property in Lever Road in the early hours of Friday (May 6).

A 28-year-old man from Rugby was arrested on suspicion of possession of cannabis with intent to supply. He has since been released under investigation while enquires continue.

Police said they seized a ‘significant’ amount of cannabis along with cash during the raid.

Det Cons Matt Rapkins from Rugby Proactive CID said: “The seizure of these drugs is a great result that will help to disrupt the supply of cannabis in Rugby.

“The supply of cannabis is often linked to serious organised crime and this is why we are so proactive in tackling the problem.

“The gangs involved in its supply often exploit vulnerable people and cause violence in our communities.

“If you think cannabis is being produced or dealt in your neighbourhood please call us. It help us to get a better intelligence picture, target those responsible and safeguard vulnerable people.”

Anyone with information which could help police tackle the supply of cannabis can report it online at or by calling 101. Alternatively, information can be provided anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
