A man and a teenage boy in Bury St Edmunds have been arrested on suspicion of drug-dealing.

Suffolk police’s Scorpion Team stopped and searched a 49-year-old man in The Vinefields at around 12.20pm on Monday, discovering a number of wraps of suspected class A drugs at his feet.

He was subsequently arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of controlled drugs.

A short while later, officers raided a nearby property and arrested a 17-year-old boy, also in possession of suspected class A drugs.

The pair were taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre Police for further questioning.
