Four people have been arrested in Bury St Edmunds after police received a tip off on drugs offences at an address in the town.

Officers from the Bury St Edmunds Safer Neighbourhood Team visited the address in Jankyns Place on Monday, June 22, where a small quantity of suspected drugs, cash and a number of mobile phones were found.

Four people, three men and a woman, were arrested at the scene on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs and taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning.

All four have been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

A police spokeswoman said: “The force wants to ensure the county remains a hostile environment for those involved in the supply of drugs and provide reassurance to Suffolk residents. Our local communities have an important role to play in this too. Don’t turn a blind eye.
