Three people, including two teenage boys, have been arrested following a county lines drugs raid at a home in Atherstone.
Police went to an address in Tannery Close yesterday morning (Monday 19 August) following concerns that a vulnerable person was being exploited by drug dealers, who were cuckooing the property - meaning they were taking over the home to deal from.
Three males were arrested at the property, while officers also seized a quantity of what is thought to be cocaine as well as knives and cash.
A 16-year-old boy from Kingswinford was arrested on suspicion of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply and burglary.
A 16-year-old boy of no fixed address was arrested on suspicion of burglary.
A 20-year-old man from Tipton was arrested on suspicion of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply and burglary.
The trio have been bailed until mid-September while enquiries continue.
Sergeant Neil Pearsall from the North Warwickshire Safer Neighbourhood Teams said: "We are committed to disrupting the activity of people involved in county lines drug networks and protecting the most vulnerable people in the community who are exploited by these drug dealers."
Anyone with information about suspected drugs related activity, or concerns about a vulnerable person being exploited, are asked to contact Warwickshire Police on 101.
