Two suspected class A drug dealers were arrested in Stevenage’s Harrow Court tower block this morning after officers executed three drug warrants in the town.

About 30 officers from the Stevenage and North Herts Operation Scorpion teams entered properties in Harrow Court, Homestead Moat and Colestrete at 8am.

Males aged 22 and 17, both from Stevenage, were arrested at Harrow Court – with a large amount of class A drugs and cash also seized.

The pair were arrested on suspicion of class A drugs with intent to supply, and remain in custody at Stevenage Police Station.

A fixed penalty notice was issued to the occupant of the Colestrete address for possession of cannabis.
