Three people have been arrested and a large quantity of drugs have been seized following a police operation in Sawbridgeworth today (Friday 11 June).

A warrant was executed at an address in Crofters End by officers from the Safer Neighbourhood Team, with support from Operation Scorpion and the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Dog Unit.

A large quantity of suspected cannabis was seized, along with cash and a vehicle.

The following people have been arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class B drugs and remain in police custody at this time:

• A 59-year-old man
• A 49-year-old woman
• A 17-year-old boy

PC Shelly Marshall, who led the operation, said: “Today’s operation was carried out as a direct result of feedback from members of the public who asked us to tackle drugs and associated criminality in the area. Everyone has a right to feel safe in their local community.

“Sadly, we know there are people out there who do not always agree with us taking this action in relation to cannabis. What people don’t see is the bigger picture around how young and vulnerable people are being exploited through drug crime and the associated violence it brings to our streets.

“These operations help to penetrate and disrupt wider criminal networks and we will not be deterred from carrying out this kind of action wherever necessary.

“If you’re concerned about drug crime in your local community, please report it.”
