A man was arrested and suspected class A and class B drugs were seized after a warrant was executed at an address in Watford.

Acting on intelligence, officers carried out the action at a property in Hallam Close in the early hours of last Wednesday (February 22).

A large amount of cannabis was seized, along with a large quantity of suspected cocaine, as well as nitrous oxide cannisters, several mobile phones and a knife.

A 20-year-old man was arrested at the scene. He has since been released on police bail whilst enquiries continue.

Sergeant Phil Smith, from the North Watford Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “I am pleased that we have prevented a substantial amount of drugs from getting onto the streets. Our investigation remains ongoing at this time.

“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. 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, or contact the independent crime fighting charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or submit details through their anonymous online form at No personal details are taken, information cannot be traced or recorded and you will not go to court.”
