Police arrest

Two men have been arrested after police found more than one and a half kilos of cannabis at a flat in Brighton.

The pair, aged 48 and 31, were questioned on suspicion of possession with intent to supply, after class B drug was seized from the property in Viaduct Road. 

A quantity of cash, mobile phones and other drugs paraphernalia were also discovered earlier this month. 

The men were released under investigation.

Chief Inspector Rachel Swinney said: "Our prevention officers, who play a crucial role in helping tackle local issues, have been targeting suspected drug dealers in the city. 

"We are also working to identify drug users to direct them to agencies who can support them.

"If anyone suspects drug dealing is going on or has any information about it please contact us.

"You can report suspicious behaviour or drug dealing at our website or ring 101.
