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 "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 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.
