A QUANTITY of Class A drugs were seized and a 59-year-old Redditch man was arrested after a police raid in Church Hill this morning.

Officers swooped in Flanders Close around 7am, catching the suspect unaware.

The man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply A drugs.




Insp Richard Field, form the Redditch Safer Neighbourhood Team, said he was pleased with the result.

“Drugs supply has such a negative impact on our communities and can lead to other localised criminality and the harm and exploitation of vulnerable people.


“Drug supply will never be tolerated in our community, and we will continue to act on information around drugs supply and trafficking.”

The man was later released under investigation.

People can report any suspected drug dealing and activity in their area by calling police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Today’s drugs warrant was part of West Mercia Police’s commitment to tackle serious and organised crime in partnership with other agencies under the Protect campaign.
