Exclusive: Two arrests after police carry out drugs raids

A man was arrested after a quantity of drugs was seized in a dramatic police raid on a property in the centre of Highbridge on Monday morning (March 30th).

These were the scenes in Church Street as officers swooped on a home at 10am, forcing their way in through the front door, before carrying out a search and then making an arrest.

Police spokesman Steve Game told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "I can confirm that we executed a drugs warrant in Church Street on Monday."

"A 30 year-old man was arrested of suspicion of possession of heroin and theft offences. He has been bailed pending further enquiries."

It comes just weeks after Burnham-On-Sea.com first reported here that Highbridge residents had decided tackling drug dealing in the town should be the number one priority for police.

A further drugs raid took place in Burnham on Tuesday morning (March 31st). Police arrested a man after executing a drugs warrant in Rosewood Close at 8am.
