TWO PEOPLE have been arrested on suspicion of dealing cannabis following a series of police raids in Worcester.
The warrants were executed yesterday morning (Tuesday) in Teme Road and saw a 21-year-old man and 16-year-old boy both detained at the scene for possession with intent to supply a Class B drug.
The pair are currently in custody at Worcester Police Station.
Officers from the Gorse Hill and Rainbow Hill Safer Neighbourhoods Team (SNT) entered the house and recovered a bag full of cannabis bush, smaller bags of cannabis, weighing scales and cash.
The team also uncovered evidence of Class A drug use along with further proof of cannabis dealing at an address on the same road.
Sergeant Helen Wain said: “We want to do all we can to address local concerns about drug use and dealing in Gorse Hill and reassure residents we are doing what we can to tackle the problem.
“Tackling drug use and supply is a local priority and we are always keen to hear from members of the public who can provide information about this and any other criminality in the area.
“We conducted these warrants as a direct response to information provided by local people, we are only as good as our most recent intelligence and we rely on community members to pass on what they know.”
