Two men were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs following a proactive warrant in South Oxhey.
Officers from the Three Rivers’ Operation Scorpion team, supported by colleagues from the Oxhey Safer Neighbourhood Team and Watford’s Operational Support Group, carried out the warrant on the morning of Tuesday, October 26.
They entered an address in Ashburnham Drive and carried out a search of the property under Section 8 of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984.
Multiple wraps of suspected class A drugs (cocaine) were found, along with suspected drug paraphernalia and more than £1,000 in cash.
A man aged in his 50s from Abbots Langley, and a man aged in his 20s from South Oxhey, were both arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of class A. They have been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
PC Jamie Cullen, from the Three Rivers Operation Scorpion team, said: “Drug crime harms our communities and it is our job to crack down on those who supply illegal substances to drug users, who are often vulnerable themselves.
“Where intelligence suggests that drug dealing is occurring, we take robust action to target those allegedly involved.
“If you believe there is illegal activity occurring in your street, please tell us. It’s these reports that help us build up a picture and enables us to take proactive steps to stamp out crime.”
