Sniffer dog helps police find drugs in Barnstaple flat

A QUANTITY of what are believed to be both class A and B drugs were seized during a police raid in Barnstaple.

Officers from the Barnstaple neighbourhood team executed two search warrants under the misuse of drugs act on Wednesday, September 23.

They were assisted by officers from the force's tactical aid group and members of PACT (Police and Communities Together Team).

Police used enforcement equipment to get into flats in Sunflower Road.

A police drugs detection dog helped officers to locate the drugs within one of the flats.

A 31-year-old local woman was arrested on suspicion of cultivation of controlled substances.

She was interviewed and released on police bail until October 9 2009.

PC Lucy Robinson of the Barnstaple town centre team said, "The operation is part of our ongoing commitment to take direct and firm action against those who deal drugs within our town."
