A man has been arrested for drug and trafficking offences after several warrants were carried out in Telford today.

Detective Sergeant Natalie Arrowsmith said: “This was a large scale operation fueled by intelligence that was acquired during the execution of other warrants in November 2020.

“We will continue to tackle the supply and cultivation of drugs in the area. Modern day slavery is also an extremely harmful and ever present issue and the force will continue to carry out operations such as this to protect vulnerable people and keep the community safe.”
