A man has been arrested in connection with drug-related offences in Watford.

Operation Scorpion officers, supported by local Watford neighbourhood officers, were conducting proactive patrols in West Watford on Tuesday, June 4, responding to concerns raised by residents around drug dealing.

Officers stopped a 37-year-old man in Durban Road, who was searched and found to be in possession of a quantity of suspected class A drugs and a knife.

He was arrested the same day and is in police custody at this time.
