NEWS: Three arrested on suspicion of drug supply in Burton


Three men have been arrested in Horninglow after officers executed a warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

The warrant was carried out at an address in Balfour Street at around 9am today, Friday 4 September.

The men, a 25-year-old and 38-year-old from Burton and a 26-year-old from Lichfield, remain in custody for questioning on suspicion of drug supply offences.

A quantity of suspected class A drugs were seized during the raid.

Sergeant Bob Champeau, of East Staffordshire Local Policing Team, said: “Operation Nemesis remains Staffordshire Police’s commitment to tackling drug dealers and bringing them to justice.

“Drug misuse will not be tolerated in Burton and we will act on all information received regarding suspected drug dealing in the communities we serve.

“We are determined to carry on working with our partner agencies to rid communities of drug dealing and the negative effect it has on neighbourhoods and families.

“Residents tell us they want robust action taken against dealers, and the criminal activity and anti-social behaviour they attract, and we will continue to take positive action.

“The help we receive from the public is absolutely vital and I would encourage people to continue to let us know their concerns if they notice suspicious activity.

“Operation Nemesis carries a simple message to drug offenders: we are not going away and we will bring you to justice.”
