Siddals Road, Drugs Warrant

Our officers from the Derby City Centre Safer Neighbourhood Team arrested four people yesterday, Wednesday, May 30, after a drug search at a flat. 

The search, at an address on Siddals Road, came after complaints of drug-related anti-social behaviour in the Castle Ward area of the city. 

Two women aged 47 and 25 years and two men aged 32 and 29 years were arrested for possession of a class B drug with intent to supply, after a quantity of drugs and related paraphernalia were seized during the search. 

Sergeant Jamie Millard, who is in charge of the team, said: “The action was taken as a result of intelligence from the community about activity at the flat. 

“It shows that we will always take positive action about such allegations that we know has a detrimental effect on the community.” 

Three of those arrested have been released under investigation whilst the 32-year-old man will appear at Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court this morning, Thursday, May 31, as he was also wanted for failing to appear at the same court.
