Bury St Edmunds women, both 27, arrested as Suffolk Constabulary target county lines
More arrests have been made in Bury St Edmunds as police attempt to tackle drug gangs.
Suffolk Constabulary stopped two 27-year-old women in the town on suspicion of conspiracy to supply class A drugs. Both were released under investigation.
These were two of 16 arrests in the county during one week in January, targeting county lines that see drug gangs operating from London into south and eastern regions.
Detective Chief Superintendent Steve Mattin who oversaw the Suffolk arrests said: “We have arrested 16 people as a result of work that has been carried out to identify those believed to be involved in the supply of drugs.
“Many of those arrested have been remanded in custody pending further court hearings, while others will appear at court over the next few weeks.
“There are significant seizures of cash and drugs that cannot be quantified at this time and our enquiries to establish exact number continue.”
