Drug Search Cummings Street3

Two women were arrested on suspicion of drugs offences after officers from the Normanton and Rosehill Safer Neighbourhood Teams executed a search warrant at a house in Derby.                              

The teams carried out a search yesterday (Wednesday, October 19)  under the Misuse of Drugs Act at an address in Cummings Street, Derby and recovered a quantity of what was believed to be amphetamine and cannabis. 

The 24 year-old tenant and a 19 year-old visitor were arrested on suspicion of possessing a controlled drug and taken to St Mary’s Wharf police station, where they were questioned and later released on bail pending further inquiries. 

Pc John Anwar, who led the search, said: “Our actions today have resulted in us seizing a quantity of what we believe to be illegal drugs. We were acting on community intelligence as the use of such substances and the means to purchase it is often linked to other crimes and anti-social behaviour that people quite rightly get upset about. 

“We would urge anyone with information to contact us and this shows that we will act positively.” 

Anyone with any information regarding this or similar issues should contact their local Safer Neighbourhood Team on 101, the non-emergency number for Derbyshire police. Alternatively, send them a message online by visiting the Contact Us section of our website here.
