 Published on: 21st July 2021   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Three people were arrested during a drugs search carried out by officers in Abbots Langley.

A 23-year-old man, a 42-year-old woman and a 15-year-old male, all from Abbots Langley, were arrested in connection with suspected drug offences during the operation on Friday (July 16).

Officers from the district’s Operation Scorpion team entered the property, on Parnell Close at 8am and carried out a search.

They were supported by colleagues from Watford’s Operation Scorpion team, as well as Abbots Langley and Rickmansworth Safer Neighbourhood Teams respectively.

Together they found and seized both class A (cocaine) and class B drugs (cannabis) and paraphernalia which suggested dealing activity.

All three were taken into police custody for questioning. The 23-year-old man, who was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply both Class A and Class B drugs, was released under investigation.

The 42-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs, possession with intent to supply Class B drugs and possession of Class B drugs (cannabis).

She was released without charge in relation to the possession with intent to supply offences, and was handed a community resolution order for the possession of cannabis.

The 15-year-old male was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs, possession with intent to supply Class B drugs, but he was later released without charge.

Operation Scorpion PC Honor Greaves, who led the operation, said: “We will never stop pursuing those who supply drugs and commit crime in Hertfordshire, because everyone deserves to live in a place where they feel safe.

“This warrant was carried out after we received intelligence from members of the public asking us to combat drugs and associated criminality in the area.

“This type of work helps us gather evidence and intelligence to infiltrate and disrupt wider criminal networks, and we will not be deterred from carrying out this kind of action wherever necessary.

“We want this to serve as a warning to anyone who is involved in drug crime in this county – we will catch up with you eventually.

“We’re asking residents to help us help them – tell us if you have information. We want to hear from you so we can improve the quality of life in your neighbourhood.”
