A man was arrested on suspicion of being involved in the supply of drugs following a vehicle stop in Watford last week.
Acting on intelligence, officers stopped a vehicle in Upton Road just before 8pm on Tuesday, May 30. Officers conducted a search, locating several bags of suspected cocaine and several hundred pounds in cash.
A 25-year-old man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs, and driving without insurance.
Police subsequently conducted a Section 18 search of an address in Upton Road, Watford, where they discovered further bags of suspected class A drugs, suspected class B drugs (cannabis) and more cash. The man was further arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class B drugs.
He has since been released on police bail whilst enquiries continue.
Chief Inspector for Watford Andy Wiseman said: “Drugs and associated criminality can have a hugely detrimental impact on the local community and we are committed to doing all we can to tackle this in Watford.
“We get a lot of our intelligence regarding drugs thanks to vigilant members of the public reporting suspicious activity in their neighbourhoods, such as the cultivation of drugs or drug dealing.
“If you have any information about the supply of drugs please contact Hertfordshire Constabulary via the non-emergency number 101, report information online at herts.police.uk/report, or contact the independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or submit details through their anonymous online form at crimestoppers-uk.org.
