Officers arrested two suspected drug dealers and seized what they believe to be Class A drugs during a raid on an address in Baldock yesterday morning.

Police entered the property in Norton Crescent at about 10.30am, and while searching it seized a quantity of suspected Class A and B drugs.

A 37-year-old woman and a 20-year-old man, both from Baldock, were arrested on suspicion of possession of drugs with intent to supply.

Both have been released on bail, and are due to return to Stevenage Police Station on June 27.

“The unlawful possession and supply of drugs will not be tolerated,” said Letchworth and Baldock Safer Neighbourhood Sgt Alan Clarke.
