1 Oct 2019
  • Man arrested during operation to disrupt County Lines drug network

  • Adam Mrabet, 19, charged with possesion with intent to supply class A drugs

  • Crack cocaine, heroin seized at address in Hemel Hempstead

Hertfordshire Constabulary carried out a warrant at an address in Hemel Hempstead as part of an ongoing campaign against County Lines drug dealing and gang activity.

The Operational Support Group and Hemel Hempstead Scorpion team served a warrant at an address in Alexandra Road, on Thursday 26 September. Officers arrested, and subsequently charged, 19 year old Adam Mrabet of Stirling Road, London, with possession with intent to supply class A drugs and possession of criminal property. Crack cocaine and heroin were seized, along with a mobile phone believed to be used to distribute drugs.

PC Hunni Glanville from Hertfordshire Constabulary’s Operational Support Group, said: “This warrant was part of our on-going activities to combat drug and gang crime in the county. We are sending a message to criminals who are bringing crime and violence to our local communities. Young and vulnerable people are often the ones who suffer the most, being drawn into criminal activities, drugs and even sexual exploitation.

“Our operations are making a significant impact on the County Lines networks operating in Hertfordshire, and we will continue to disrupt gang activities and stop the supply of drugs into our towns.”
