Police have seized several heroin and cannabis quantities after doing two days of raids.

Police have recently carried out two days of drugs warrants in Felixstowe resulting in the seizure of several small quantities of heroin.

Last week officers carried out warrants in Langer Road, Adastral Close, Queens Road and St Marys Close in Trimley.

At Langer Road on Tuesday, 23 October, a search was made and while police were at the address three other individuals visited the property. All were searched and a small amount of heroin was recovered from a 37-year-old man who has been interviewed for possession and reported for summons.

At Adastral Close no drugs were found but at Queens Road, on Wednesday 24, a small amount of heroin and cannabis was seized along with tablets believed to be a class C controlled drug.

Two men – a 22-year-old and a 25-year-old - were interviewed in connection with the find, with the 22-year-old being reported for possession of the cannabis, and enquiries are continuing.

At St Mary's Close in Trimley a search revealed a single deal of heroin. A 52-year-old man was interviewed on suspicion of possession of heroin and he too has been reported for summons for possession of the drug.

Detective Inspector Angus Moir said; "While on this occasion we have not located significant quantities of drugs, this activity has helped to disrupt those involved in the drugs community in Felixstowe and sends a message that we are committed to tackling the supply of drugs into the town. Information gathered before and during these warrants will help us tackle a range of crimes and we'd urge anyone with information about drugs supply to call us on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously if required, on 0800 555 111."
