Town centre property raided during drugs bust

OFFICERS smashed their way into Bournemouth town centre properties on Friday afternoon during another day of action.

Bournemouth police were targeting drug dealers in the town centre on April 26 in a day that was described by the force as a “great success”.

As well as a raid in the top end of Old Christchurch Road, three people were arrested, one vehicle was seized and two people were stop searched in relation to drugs.

An additional search was carried out at an unnamed address that is linked to drug dealing.

Bournemouth south neighbourhood team, along with plain clothed officers, were able to seize an unspecified amount of Class A and Class B drugs and some cash.

Bournemouth police said: “Please continue to report any suspicious activity you witness, this helps us to build intelligence and conduct operations like this.”

Also on Friday Bournemouth police raided a house in Richmond Park Crescent during a drugs bust.

Residents reported seeing numerous vans, cars and officers parked up nearby.

Inside the home, officers found and seized suspected controlled drugs.

Meanwhile a man inside was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs. He was taken away in the back of a police van and into custody.
