Two teenagers arrested on suspicion of drug offences in Bury St Edmunds


Police in Bury St Edmunds have arrested two teenagers on suspicion of drugs offences in the town yesterday.

At around 12.15pm officers out on patrol in Spring Lane witnessed persons acting suspiciously near the nature reserve.

On entering the reserve, the officers had cause to stop and search two individuals, seizing a quantity of cash and mobile phones.

The nearby area was then searched and a number of wraps of what was believed to be Class A drugs were also seized.

A 19-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy, both from Hackney in east London, were subsequently arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.

The pair were taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning, where they have been bailed to return to on Wednesday, August 5, pending further enquiries.
