Three suspected drug dealers arrested in Rugby

THREE suspected drug dealers have been arrested in Rugby during the past week.

During a raid on a house in Hudson Road on February 8, officers from Rugby Proactive CID arrested two 17-year-old boys, from Birmingham and Nottingham, when cash, phones and 80 wraps of suspected class A drugs were found and seized. Both boys were released on bail while investigations continue.

Having received reports of suspected drug dealing in Clifton Road Cemetery on February 10, police attended and arrested Pires Williams, 20, of Winfield Street, who was later found to have class A drugs hidden on his person. Williams was charged with possession of class A drugs with intent to supply and remanded in custody to appear at court on March 17.

Det Cons Thomas Quinlan said: “Success in tackling drug dealing in Rugby is greatly assisted by information that comes from our communities. These cases are good examples where we have acted on intelligence received and been able to disrupt the supply of drugs in the town.

“We would appeal to anyone who has suspicions concerning the supply or manufacture of drugs to get in touch. What might seem a small or unsubstantiated piece of information can be invaluable to an ongoing investigation.”
