Two men have been arrested in New Mills as part of a targeted police operation to crackdown on drugs in the town.

At around 1.45pm yesterday (Wednesday, October 21) officers executed a warrant a property on Peak Road in connection with suspected drugs activity. A quantity of suspected Class A drugs were discovered at the address and seized by police.

A 36-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs and currently remains in police custody.

On the same day, officers discovered a quantity of suspected Class A drugs after carrying out a stop search on a man on St Georges Road, New Mills.

A 36-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of Class A drugs and has since been bailed pending forensic examination.

Section Inspector Barry Doyle from the Buxton North policing teams said: “This action is part of a targeted operation to crackdown on drugs offences in our communities and it is my intention to take a zero intolerance approach to those involved with this type of behaviour.

“I’d urge anyone who wants to report suspected criminal activity to do so, and I hope that this action will assure people that we do treat those reports seriously and will act on them.”
