Police have recovered drugs after warrants were executed in a Alnwick.

On Thursday, July 31, two drugs warrants were carried out in the Barresdale Estate in Alnwick after information was received about suspected drug use.

A quantity of cannabis, white powder and cash was recovered at the addresses. Two local men aged 56 and 44 are helping police with inquiries.

Neighbourhood Inspector Paul Truscott said: “There’s no place for drug use or supply in Alnwick and when we receive information we will take positive action against those suspected of being involved.

“Drugs cause misery in communities and the people targeting the vulnerable and most at risk with drugs supply will be identified and dealt with.

“While we don’t have a particular issue with drugs in the town we will always act on information received to ensure it remains a safe place to live.”
