Proactive checks on vulnerable residents' homes leads to Worthing drugs arrests
Officers from the Worthing Neighbourhood Policing Team made several arrests following proactive patrols to tackle drug-dealing in the town.
They focused on addresses where vulnerable residents were at risk of being targeted by drug dealers.
Some residents were at risk of “cuckooing” by criminal groups from London who take over the home of a vulnerable person and use the property as a base for their operation in a process known as County Lines.
Officers’ work led to several arrests for multiple offences, and four people were given safeguarding support.
Three knives were seized along with £2,000 in cash and large amounts of class A drugs. TO READ THE FULL STORY, PLEASE CLICK ON THE LINK OR GO TO OUR WEBSITE.
