THREE men have been arrested following a drugs raid in South Derbyshire.

A quantity of Class B drugs and cannabis were recovered from the property.

A 21-year-old man was arrested for possession with intent to supply. A second man, 21, was arrested for possession of a Class B drug.

A 22-year-old man was arrested and later received a formal warning for possession of cannabis.

PC Louise Durham, from the North West Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “This warrant was executed following intelligence received from the local community.

“We always like to act positively in such cases and we hope this result demonstrates to the local community our resolve to act on their concerns and take action against perpetrators of such activity.
