Two people arrested following Chester drugs raid

Officers from Chester have arrested two men following a drugs raid in the city.

At around 6.15am today, Friday 5 July, officers from Western Problem Solving team, with the assistance of Beat management team and Chester Proactive policing team, executed a warrant at an address on Sherbourne Avenue.

During search of the address officers recovered a quantity of what is believed to be Class A drugs (cocaine), along with cash, a mobile phone and other drugs paraphernalia.

Two men, aged 30 and 38, were arrested at the address on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.

The pair are both being held in custody where they are assisting officers with their enquiries.

Following the raid PC Dylan Rowe, from Western Problem Solving team, said:

“Today’s warrant is part of our ongoing efforts to tack the supply of illegal drugs in Chester and I hope it provides reassurance to local residents.

“Drugs have a hugely detrimental impact on our communities, causing widespread misery. As such, cutting off supplies of illegal drugs and removing dealers from our streets is of paramount importance.

“As part of our efforts to bring those responsible to justice, we also need support from the local community.

“I would appeal to anyone who has any information about illegal drug activity or any other criminal activity taking place in their communities to contact us on 101, via the website or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
