Police are looking to carry out raids in a Wiltshire village as they try to “get on top of” local drug supply.

During a question and answer session, Inspector Ben Huggins and Sergeant Chris Wickham laid out several current policing priorities for the force’s Devizes, Marlborough and Pewsey sector.

One of the main focuses in the area is tackling drug supply in Pewsey, where officers are planning to execute warrants in the near future.

Sgt Wickham said: “We’ve got a few irons in the fire in relation to local drug supply which we’re looking to get on top of and execute some warrants from Magistrates Court, drug warrants.”

Meanwhile officers in Marlborough will crack down on “a flash of youth anti-social behaviour” which has seen fires lit in the town.

The priority for officers in Devizes will be dealing with “seasonal spikes” in shoplifting and “general anti-social behaviour and street drinking issues.”

Local teams will clamp down on these offences through Operation Elf, with officers set to conduct more foot patrols in the town centre.

Police throughout the county will be targeting drink and drug drivers during the festive period.

Sgt Wickham added: “We’ve seen a massive amount of road deaths this year… it’s a plea from us to say please plan your journey home.”
