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

Dorset Police are taking action against offenders, with several arrested in the Bournemouth district 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 no longer 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 the 24 arrested last month have been charged, while others have been released on police bail, pending further inquiries.

"We also continue to work closely with landlords and Bournemouth Borough Council as part of our joint commitment to the Boscombe Regeneration Partnership 'Backing Boscombe' campaign" added Inspector Weeks.

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