Two men have been arrested following a raid in Swindon on Monday (23 October).
Police executed an early-morning warrant at a building in Cherry Tree Grove, Pinehurst, after concerns were raised over potential drug-related activity.
Police dog Rey carried out searches alongside officers – locating “lots of drugs”.
Wiltshire Police confirmed that a quantity of class A and class B drugs were discovered, as well as an offensive weapon.
Two men, aged 19 and 28, were arrested on suspicion being concerned in the supply of class A and class B drugs. They have since been released on bail.
One of the men was also arrested on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon in a private place, for which he has been charged and will appear in court at a later date.
