A man suspected of trying to deal cocaine, heroin and cannabis has been caught by police in Somerset today (Friday).

The 26-year-old was arrested at a house in Highbridge at 8.45am this morning after officers found him in possession of class A and B drugs.

Police believe the man, who lives in London, was attempting to deal drugs in Bridgwater.

PC Jennifer Atkinson said: “We think the suspect was ‘cuckooing’ the address of a drug user.

“The term cuckooing is where someone targets the home of a drug user or someone vulnerable, using the address to store and supply drugs.

“We were able to issue this warrant after receiving intelligence and would encourage anyone in the area with information to please come forward as our investigation is still ongoing.”

Anyone with information about drug dealing is asked to call the police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
