Four men were arrested this morning after a drugs bust in Letchworth.

As part of Operation Scorpion, officers from the Letchworth, Baldock, Hitchin and Royston Safer Neighbourhood Teams executed a search warrant at a house in Icknield Way at about 7am and seized a quantity of Class A and Class B drugs.

Two men – aged 38 and 44 and both from Letchworth – were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.

A 26-year-old man from Letchworth was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs, shoplifting and possession of Class B drugs.

Another man – a 28-year-old from London – was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs and possession of Class B drugs.

Sgt Alan Clarke said: “The unlawful possession and supply of drugs will not be tolerated.

“It has an extremely destructive impact on people’s lives and the community as a whole. Any such activity reported to police will be acted upon quickly and robustly.
