A TEENAGER was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply drugs in Charford in the early hours of this morning.
The 17-year-old, from Birmingham, is currently in custody after the swoop at a property in Lyttleton Avenue at 2am where suspected class A and B drugs were seized, along with hundreds of pounds in cash.
The news was welcomed by district councillor Michael Thompson, leader of the Charford Residents’ Association.
He said: “The most common problem that has been brought to my attention this month has been drugs and drug dealing.
“Whether this is a rise in the problem or simply that it is noticed more with people on lockdown, I do not know.
“It is true, however, that I have received more calls about it than usual.
“The people of Charford are tired of people bringing this area into disrepute and we are intent on kicking drugs and drug dealers out of our community.”
He thanked Patrick Proudfoot for building up the Neighbourhood Watch, praised the police for their action and urged anyone with any information on drugs or drug-dealing in Charford to contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
