Chaddesden drug warrant

Two women and a man have been arrested on suspicion of drugs offences after officers from the Chaddesden Safer Neighbourhood Team executed a search warrant at a house on Kerry Street. 

The team carried out a search yesterday, Tuesday, December 5, under the Misuse of Drugs Act and recovered a quantity what is believed cannabis and morphine. 

The women, aged 38 and 35, were arrested, along with a 31-year-old man, on suspicion of the possession of Class A and B drugs. They were also arrested on suspicion of burglary after property from a house break-in was allegedly found during the search. 

A 56 year-old woman was interviewed at the address after being found in possession of what was believed to be amphetamine. 

Acting Sergeant Luke Scribbins, who was in charge of the search, said: “We took the action as a result of intelligence received from the community. This type of suspected behaviour often results in criminality and anti-social behaviour and so we will always act when we receive such information. 

“We also visited other local houses to let people know what we have been doing at the address to re-assure them that we will take positive action.”
