Drugs and cash recovered in Luton

Alert message sent 06/10/2020 15:46:00

Information sent on behalf of Bedfordshire Police

Officers recovered Class A drugs and around £1,000 in cash after stopping a vehicle.

On Friday (2 October) officers from the Luton community team began following a car and arrested the driver in Liddell Close following a short pursuit on foot.

They found around £300 worth of Class A drugs, mobile phones and around £1,000 in cash.

An 18-year-old man from Luton was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs, as well as theft of a motor vehicle.

Sergeant Barry Smith said: “My team plays a key role on the front line of tackling the illegal drugs market.

“Drugs are a scourge on our society. Most firearms discharges in Bedfordshire are linked to the illegal drugs trade, as are many stabbings.

“Vulnerable drug addicts can be exploited through the illegal sex industry or cuckooing, with drugs driving much of the burglary and anti-social behaviour which blights our communities.”

All of this gets fed into police intelligence systems and can help officers build up a better picture of organised crime, even if we do not act on the information straight away.
