Two men and a teenager have been arrested following a drugs bust in Queens Park on Thursday night (February 7).

Police recovered a large amount of suspected Class A and Class B drugs in the bust, which took place in Coventry Road. They also found mobile phones and suspected drug dealing paraphernalia.

“This was just the latest in a number of warrants we have carried out since the team launched in January, and further activity is planned over the coming weeks.

“We will be doing all we can to disrupt gang activity in the north of the county and this operation should serve as a warning to those involved.”
