Two arrested as city premises raided for drugs

Droitwich Advertiser: Two arrested as city premises raided for drugs Two arrested as city premises raided for drugs

THIS was the dramatic moment when police arrested two men after a drugs raid in the city centre this afternoon.

cannabis was found when police raided a closed-down convenience store on The Tything – just yards from the magistrates court and police station.

The raid took place at about 1pm at the Nisa Local shop in the Tything, which is thought to have closed its doors earlier this week.

Passers-by saw police entering the property from the rear entrance off Britannia Road. At least seven officers took part in the operation, some using specialist gear to gain entrance.

It is thought the police initially had difficulty gaining entry to the property as the back door was reinforced by a corrugated metal shutter.

As the raid continued, an officer was posted at the front of the property, and the odour of cannabis could be smelled from the street.

Following the raid, two males who were in Castle Street near the property were arrested at 1.20pm. One resisted arrest and there was a scuffle as police tried to restrain him. The two were then walked to the police station.

Sadly, I fear their human rights will have been violated by making them WALK to the Police Station and the courts will have no option but to let them go with a good chunk of compensation.

and sadly I doubt they will get more than a slap on the wrist and a fine. How will we clear the streets of these scum if the sentences are so soft?

Only if you're going round in circles.
