Local neighbourhood policing officers seized suspected drugs and cash following two warrants in Bridport.

At approximately 10am on Thursday 14 March 2024, officers conducted two warrants under section eight of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act at addresses in the town centre.

During the warrants, officers located and seized quantities of suspected class A and class B drugs, cash and digital devices.

A 34-year-old local woman was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of class A. She has been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

A man aged in his 40s and a woman aged in her 20s – both from Bridport – were arrested at the scene and subsequently de-arrested while further investigative work is carried out.
