A man has been arrested on suspicion of drug offences following a warrant in Swindon.

Officers conducted the warrant at the address in Bath Road on Friday.

A quantity of cannabis and suspected class A drugs were located, as well as scales and cash. 

A 25-year-old local man was arrested on suspicion of possession of a class A drug and possession with intent to supply a class B drug. 

He was taken to Gablecross custody for questioning and has since been released under investigation while enquiries continue. 

PC Paul Bezzant said: “During this warrant, officers also seized two gas powered guns, an extendable baton, an axe and a stab vest. 

“These items have all been seized as part of our enquiries.

“It’s really important that any members of our community who suspect drug activity is taking place in their neighbourhood report it to police so we can take action.”
