South ward officers carried out the drugs warrant on Friday evening in Monkton Avenue on the Oldmixon. They recovered what they believe to be cocaine with a street value of approximately £700 and a large quantity of cash. Police arrested a 37-year-old man on suspicion of possession of criminal property and possession of a class A drug with intent to supply. He has been bailed pending further enquiries until August 4. PC Andy Vallender told the Mercury: We want to take a positive stance against drug dealing. I would like to see more people come forward with information about drugs. You see a lot of children playing near where the warrants are being executed and we want to make it better for them for the future.
