Police swoop on Burnham-On-Sea home in 'drugs bust'

A man was arrested after police swooped on a building in Abingdon Street, Burnham-On-Sea this week in what local residents say was 'a drugs bust'.

PoliceA police spokesman confirmed to Burnham-On-Sea.com that "a quantity of a suspicious substance was taken away for analysis" and that a male was taken into custody before being later bailed.

Eyewitnesses said the raid involved up to 10 police officers with sniffer dogs.

"Two police vans pulled up in the middle of the street with between 8 and 10 police officers - many of whom were wearing helmets and flack jackets," said one local resident.

"We saw they had sniffer dogs and were carrying a ladder - presumably to gain access to various parts of the building."

Another eyewitness, who asked not to be named, said: "A friend who runs a nearby business said she'd had no doubt that it was a drugs bust."
