Public tip off results in drug arrest

Wolverhampton Police are thanking members of the local community for information, which led to one arrest and the recovery of a quantity of herbal cannabis from an address in Wednesfield over the weekend.

Officers from the Wednesfield North neighbourhood policing team executed a warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act at an address in Wymering Avenue at around 10.25am yesterday (7 November).

Following a search of the property police seized a quantity of cannabis along with other drugs paraphernalia.

A 36-year-old man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of possession of Class B drugs with intent to supply. He has since been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

Sergeant Tracey Baker from Wednesfield North neighbourhood police team said: “This is a real team effort by the police and members of the local community. PCSOs out on patrol received several reports from members of the public. This information was then used in combination with our own intelligence to achieve a positive result.

“This was a really good example of how the police and local community can work together to help fight against crime.”

If you have any information on drug dealing in your area you can contact Wolverhampton Police on 0345 113 5000 or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

The story does not say if the person arrested was a dealer or growing plants for personal use. After reading this I’m left with the impression that the police have simply issued a press release after a neighbour grassed on another.

The statement says: “A 36-year-old man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of possession of Class B drugs with intent to supply.”

So I would have thought that Police think that there’s a chance of a conviction under “intent to supply”…..meaning they suspect this person is a dealer?
