POLICE arrested a 50-year-old man during a Rodbourne raid on suspicion of supplying Class A and B drugs and money laundering.

Officers acted on information from neighbours and officers on patrol in the area to carry out a warrant on a Barnum Court property on Friday morning.

They seized Class A and B drugs and high-value goods which are believed to be proceeds of crime.

A suspect is in custody at Gablecross Police Station for questioning.

A/Sgt Nathan Martin said: “We are aware of the concerns expressed by people in Rodbourne in relation to illegal drug use in the area in recent weeks and in response to this we have been conducting regular overt and covert patrols to provide reassurance and tackle those intent on supplying drugs within our communities.

“We’ve had some good results combined with the information provided to us by residents. We will seek a closure order for the address over the next few weeks
