Police have seized cannabis and cash following a drugs raid.

Officers from the Orpington Safer Neighbourhoods Team executed a search warrant at an address in Saltwood Close on July 25.

They found several bags of what is believed to be cannabis, drugs paraphernalia including snap bags and electronic weighing scales and around £1000 in cash.

Officers also seized a mobile phone, tablet computer sat-nav and laptop.

A 17-year-old boy and 30-year-old man were arrested at the scene on suspicion of possession with intent to supply cannabis and the 17-year-old boy was also arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods after initial enquiries into the phone seized showed it may have been stolen.

Both have been bailed until late August, pending further enquiries.

Sgt Nick McLaughlin, from the Orpington Safer Neighbourhoods Team said: “Drugs cause harm to local communities and we will continue to target people that are using, producing or supplying drugs in Orpington. The presence of drugs of any kind can lead to other problems of crime and antisocial behaviour in that area, so we’d encourage local residents to get in touch with us or contact Crimestoppers if they suspect drugs are being used or dealt in their local neighbourhood.”

The Orpington Safer Neighbourhoods Team can be contacted on 020 8721 2729. Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
