Posted on 3rd July 2014

Two youths have been cautioned after officers found them in possession of suspected Class B drugs during patrols in Wirksworth on Friday, June 27.

Officers from the Wirksworth and Middleton Safer Neighbourhood Team were carrying out patrols on Fanny Shaw playing fields on Cromford Road, Wirksworth as part of an operation to clamp down on drugs in the area.

The youths, aged 15 and 17-years-old, were cautioned by police and plans are being put in place for them to work alongside the multi-agency Youth Offending Team as part of a restorative justice agreement.

PC Mat Winterbottom from the Wirksworth and Middleton Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “As part of our work to combat drug use in Wirksworth we will continue to carry out high-visibility patrols across the community.

“The public can help us to crackdown on this type of crime by sharing information and reporting any anti-social behaviour to police on 101.”
