A MAN and a woman in their 60s were arrested after a double drugs raid in Park North.

Suspected class A and B drugs were found along with cash when police executed two drug warrants simultaneously at addresses in Welcombe Avenue this morning.

The pair were arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance with intent to supply.

Sergeant Richard Fay of the Swindon Central South CPT Neighbourhoods Team said: “Despite the current Covid-19 pandemic, we are continuing to take a hard stance on those who cause most harm in our communities.

“Our actions today were the result of our local residents speaking out against those who commit crime and anti-social behaviour in our neighbourhoods and I hope these arrests provide some reassurance to the local community that we will listen and we will take action.

“Please continue to speak to us and tell us what is happening in your community.”
