Police are continuing to crackdown on drugs crime in Boscombe - with 24 arrests made during October.

Dorset Police are continuing to take positive action over drugs - with several arrests made for possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.

Heroin, with an estimated street value of £6,000 along with £15,000 in cash was also seized, resulting in five arrests.

Neighbourhood Inspector Chris Weeks said: "The arrests and seizures made during October are part of our ongoing commitment to make Boscombe safer and to make it clear that we will not tolerate drugs or drug-related activity in our town.

"We continue to receive strong support from the people of Boscombe and I am very grateful for this."

Further arrests were made for production of a Class B drug and possession with intent to supply Class B drugs.

Some of those arrested during October have been charged, while others have been released on police bail, pending further inquiries.

"As always, I would encourage anyone with information or concerns about alleged drugs offences to contact police in confidence."
