Information from members of the public led to a quantity of drugs being seized and a man being arrested in Hertford yesterday (Tuesday, 9 July).

Officers from the local Scorpion team were conducting proactive patrols in the Hartham Common area, following complaints from concerned members of the public around suspected drug dealing.

Three men were seen acting suspiciously and tried to leave the area when officers approached. Two of the men were subsequently detained for a search.

Three bags of cannabis were seized, with a further 27 bags being located after further searches.

A 20-year-old man from Greenford was arrested on suspicion of possession of a class B drug with intent to supply. He has been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
