TWO Rugby men suspected of dealing drugs including cocaine, crack, MDMA and amphetamines have been charged.

Officers from Warwickshire Police Proactive CID arrested Wojciech Stromski, 44, of Charlotte Street on Monday (February 27) after officers spotted a suspected drug deal. They seized amphetamines and a search of his house led to the seizure of more drugs.

Stromski was charged with possession of MDMA, amphetamines and cannabis with intent to supply. He was also charged with further counts of the same offence as part of a separate investigation.

Stromski appeared at Coventry Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday (March 1) where he was remanded to appear at Warwick Crown Court on March 30.




Ashley Burroughs, 28, of Bilton Road, was arrested on Tuesday (February 28) in Addison Road after officers spotted a suspected drug deal.

He was later charged with possession of cocaine with intent to supply. He was also charged with a further count of possession of cocaine with intent to supply, and possession of crack cocaine with intent to supply, as part of a separate investigation.


Burroughs appeared at Coventry Crown Court on Wednesday (March 1) where he was bailed to appear at Warwick Crown Court on 29 March.

Det Ch Insp Neil Reader, head of Warwickshire Police Proactive CID, said: “These arrests are part of our ongoing efforts to tackle drug dealing.

“Operations such as this rely on intelligence from our communities about the supply and use of drugs. We may not be able to respond to every report made to us, but arrests such as these show that we do act on all intelligence submitted and use it to build a bigger picture and identify patterns of activity.

“The intelligence you provide alongside our own investigations allows us to take a long-term approach to tackle those who choose to deal drugs in our community.”
