Posted on 4th January 2017
Brighton Road Drug Warrant

A man has been arrested today on suspicion of drugs offences after officers from the Alvaston Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) and our Task Force executed a search warrant at a house in the suburb of Derby.                              

The teams carried out a search today, Wednesday, January 4 under the Misuse of Drugs Act at an address in Brighton Road, Alvaston Derby, and recovered a quantity what is believed to be cocaine. 

The 25 year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of a Class A drug and taken to St Mary’s Wharf Police Station, where he is currently being questioned. 

Sergeant Graham Young, who is in charge of the Alvaston SNT, said: “We took the action as a result of intelligence received from the community. This type of suspected behaviour is upsetting to residents and often results in criminality and anti-social behaviour, so we will always act when we receive such information. 

“We have been visiting other local properties and letting people know what we have been doing at the address to re-assure them that we have and will continue to take positive action. We would urge anyone with further similar information to contact us.”
