Officers stormed an address in St Leonards and arrested a 21-year-old on suspicion of possessing an offensive weapon in a private place. He was also arrested on suspicion of supplying Class A drugs and possessing Class A and B drugs.

The search came after plain-clothed officers arrested another woman following a suspected drug deal.

A Sussex Police spokesman said: “At around 12pm on January 22 plain-clothed officers patrolling the Warrior Square area witnessed a suspected drug deal.

“A 39-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs. She was further arrested in custody on suspicion of possession of a Class A drug.

“On arrest, the woman disclosed that a man was at her address with a sword.

“Officers executed a Section 18 search at her property and arrested a 21-year-old man on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs, possession of Class A and B drugs, and possession of an offensive weapon in a private place.”

Both the man and woman have been released on conditional bail pending further investigations.
