Two people arrested following drugs warrants in Swindon

By Ben Fitzgerald - 21 May 2020


Two people were arrested in Swindon this morning following two simultaneous drugs warrants.

Both warrants were executed at addresses in Welcombe Avenue.

A quantity of suspected class A and B drugs were located inside the addresses as well as cash, and two people – a man and a woman both aged in their 60s – were arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance with intent to supply. 

Sergeant Richard Fay of the Swindon Central South CPT Neighbourhoods Team, said: “Despite the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are continuing to take a hard stance on those who cause most harm in our communities. 

“Our actions today were the result of our local residents speaking out against those who commit crime and anti-social behaviour in our neighbourhoods, and I hope these arrests provide some reassurance to the local community that we will listen and we will take action. 

“Please continue to speak to us and tell us what is happening in your community.”

The two arrested remain in custody in Gablecross.
