Arrests were made after illegal drugs, cash, scales and mobile phones were seized from a Dorset property.

A man and woman aged in their 30s were arrested by police on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs and remain in police custody.

The pair were arrested after warrants were executed at two addresses in Sherborne.

Officers from the local neighbourhood policing team were supported by colleagues from the Force Support Group and Professional Development Unit as they conducted the warrants on the morning of Wednesday, November 8 under section eight of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act.

Neighbourhood Sergeant Mike Brown said: “We recognise the impact that reported drug supply and associated activity has on our local communities. We continue to act on information received to disrupt the activities of those suspected of being involved and take robust action against them.

“I would encourage anyone with intelligence or information regarding suspect drug related activity in their area to report it to Dorset Police at or call 101. If a crime is in progress, always dial 999.”
