A SUSPECTED drug dealer has been arrested after officers stopped a car in Rugby yesterday (Monday November 22).

Plain clothed detectives from Rugby Proactive CID stopped a VW Golf, which they suspected was involved in a drug deal, in Borrowdale.

A 43-year-old man from Rugby was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of drugs.

The man was also wanted on two outstanding warrants for failure to appear at court. He was detained to be put before the court for these offences while he remains under investigation for the alleged drug offence.
