An 18-year-old Peterborough man has been arrested after police in Suffolk seized hundreds of wraps of class A drugs.

Officers carried out the warrants over a three day period last week in Bury St Edmunds, Haverhill and Sudbury, with four of the searches proving positive with seizures, and signs of drug use at two further properties.

During the course of the pro-active targeting of suspected dealers 23 people were searched and 10 were arrested for being concerned in the supply of class A drugs.

Police seized around 400 wraps containing drugs, with an estimated value of £6,000, and a quantity of cannabis, along with cash and mobile phones.

Police also carried out work to identify those bringing drugs into the area.

Four of the ten were arrested after police carried out a warrant at a home in the Station Hill area of Bury St Edmunds on Friday 18 March and recovered class A drugs.

Three men – two from Bury St Edmunds, a 42-year-old, a 35-year-old, and a 18-year-old from Peterborough – and a 39-year-old woman from Bury were detained and taken into custody where they were interviewed.

All four have now been bailed to return to police on 17 June.
