One person was arrested and suspected class A and B drugs were seized during a recent police raid in St Albans.

Operation Scorpion officers carried out a Section 23 warrant under the Misuse Of Drugs Act 1971 at a residential address on Monday, July 24. Suspected drugs were recovered, as well as cash, weapons and a stab vest.

A 17-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A and B drugs and possession of an offensive weapon. He was released on police bail while enquiries continue.

PC Patel, of the St Albans Scorpion team, said: “This operation is just one example of proactive measures we take against those suspected to be involved with criminality in the county. We have a number of targets coming up in the next few months, so we hope to share more results soon.

“If you have information about crime within Hertfordshire, then please do report it to us.”
