Your local officers from East Staffordshire Local Police Team Hevea Rd supported by specialist officers from Staffordshire Police executed a search warrant at an address in Hevea Road, Horninglow, Burton on Trent.
Due to the nature of the intelligence received some of those officers were armed.
The use of armed officers is very carefully considered and is done to ensure the safety of the community, our officers and any persons at the location affected. We will continue to target criminals who blight our communities.
The Police rely on members of our communities coming forward and sharing information and intelligence with us; and it’s as a result of this relationship that we were able to take positive action yesterday evening. I’d like to thank residents of this estate for their patience and understanding.
A 28-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of drugs and suspicion of burglary after suspected stolen property was recovered along with a quantity of drugs.
If you have any concerns please speak to a member of your local policing team who are on patrol in the area or call them on 101.
