Police patrols stepped up in Lowestoft town centre after teenagers are arrested for drugs offences
Police patrols have been stepped up in a bid to target drug offences in a coastal town centre.
It comes after two teenagers were arrested for drug offences in Lowestoft – with officers increasing plain clothed patrols and stopping and searching people who are believed to be conducting illegal activity, while seizing drugs and quantities of cash.
A 16-year-old boy, from Hertfordshire, has been bailed until December 6 after he was arrested on suspicion of money laundering, possession of class A drugs with intent to supply, and possession of class B or C drugs in Clapham Road South on October 17.
Also last month, a 16-year-old boy, from the Middlesex area, was stopped by officers and arrested on suspicion of possession of Class A drugs with intent to supply in St Peters Street on Monday, October 31. He has been bailed to return to police on January 11, 2017.
? Police are urging anyone with information about those involved in drug dealing or anyone who witnesses any suspicious activity to contact Lowestoft Police on 101.
