Two people have been arrested on suspicion of drug-related offences following a police raid in Stevenage yesterday.

Officers from Stevenage and North Herts Operation Scorpion teams along with Stevenage Safer Neighbourhood officers executed a warrant and forced entry to an address in Homestead Moat at around 7.30am yesterday, where suspected class A and B drugs were seized.

A 56-year-old man from Stevenage was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of drugs and a 35-year-old woman, also from Stevenage, was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a controlled drug.
