Plain clothes officers were patrolling in the area around Grange shops on Tuesday last week when they witnessed what was believed to be a drugs deal and stopped a man and carried out a search. Officers found a small quantity of what is believed to be herbal cannabis and a number of other substances which are believed to be various Class A drugs.

A 28-year-old from Letchworth GC has been arrested on suspicion of possession of Class A drugs with intent to supply and has been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

Acting Chief Inspector Jason Thorne said: "I hope this sends a message to anyone participating in similar activity that we are actively tackling drugs and we will be carrying out similar patrols using plain clothes officers in the run up to Christmas as part of the on-going campaign, Operation Crystal, which aims tackle the supply of illegal drugs in Hertfordshire.
