Suspected town centre drug deal caught on camera

EAGLE-eyed CCTV operators spotted a suspected drug deal in broad daylight in Rugby town centre yesterday (Tuesday April 19).

Two men were arrested after the alleged drug sale was reported to police at around 1.10pm.

Plain clothed police officers who were on patrol in the area detained the two suspects in Evreux Way a few minutes later.

The suspects, both aged 19 and from Coventry, were taken to custody when they were found to be in possession of suspected Class A drugs, a quantity of cash and a mobile phone.

The suspects have been released on bail while investigations continue.

Det Cons Gary Hammond said: “This is a great example of partnership working between Rugby First BID Town Centre CCTV and Rugby Proactive CID officers.

“With such an expansive CCTV network in operation throughout Rugby, the collaboration is powerful in combating drug dealing in the town.”
