Police officers stormed a Chippenham house in search of drugs and weapons leading to three men being arrested.

Wiltshire Police officers from Chippenham and Trowbridge Neighbourhood Teams executed a warrant at an address in Portway on Friday, May 31, after they were led to believe that drugs were hidden inside the house.

After raiding the property, officers found suspected Class A and B drugs, as well as multiple weapons.

Three men – one aged 18 and two aged 19, were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A and B drugs. They are currently in custody awaiting questioning.

“This was a successful warrant for us this morning because not only have we made three arrests, but we’ve located and seized a quantity of suspected class A and B drugs, preventing it from reaching vulnerable drug users in our community," said Sergeant Jamie Ball.

“Warrants of this nature rely heavily on the community submitting intelligence.

"It helps us build an intelligence picture of the threat and harm posed to the community and enables us to take appropriate action.

“We will not tolerate drugs in our community here in Chippenham or the violence that is often associated with drug supply and we will continue to target those suspected of being involved.”

To report drug activity, call 101, or 999 if a crime is in progress.
