CHARGES are yet to be brought against a man arrested in connection with an alleged network of teens dealing drugs in Kingsdown School remains under investigations.

Police raided a home on Cowleaze Walk, Stratton, in August following reports that up to 40 children were selling drugs at the school.

A 27-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class B drugs and inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.

Wiltshire Police yesterday said the man had been released under investigation and charges had not yet been brought. A spokeswoman said: "Enquiries are ongoing."

At the time, Sgt Nathan Perry said: “We all know about County Lines and the risks associated with that. The difficulty with this type of drugs operation is that it’s specifically targeting very young children in order to get them to deal drugs.

“Some of the information we’ve been passed is that children are not only being coerced into this activity, but they’re also being physically threatened. If they go to police or teachers they’ll be harmed.”

Kingsdown School said safeguarding children was its “number one priority”.
