Two men have been arrested after Warwickshire Police seized over £120,000 of class A drugs in Rugby.

The drugs were found on Tuesday, after police received a tip-off about suspicious people in Hillmorton.

Whilst searching one of the suspect’s homes, officers found a number of packages that are believed to be class A drugs, including heroin, with an estimated street value of £127,100.

A 21 year-old man and a 22-year-old man, both from Rugby, were detained and arrested after being found in possession of class A and B controlled drugs. Both men were also arrested under the suspicion of intent to supply class A drugs, and have been bailed until Monday October 12.

Detective Constable Gary Hammond said: “Warwickshire Police is committed to tackling the production, use and supply of illegal drugs and other criminal acts associated with drugs.

“The community can help by providing information to police by contacting the 101 non-emergency number.”
