Two men arrested in connection with drugs bust near Reading

Thames Valley Police has arrested two men on conspiracy to supply Class C drugs, after carrying out a drugs bust in the village of Sonning Common near Reading.

Officers executed a warrant under Section 8 of the PACE Act at an address in Sedgewell Road last Tuesday (30/06/20) and discovered and seized a large quantity of cash and electronic devices.

The two men arrested have since been released on bail.

Detective Constable Nicola Henderson, based at Reading police station, said:

“Thames Valley Police is committed to tackling serious and organised crime.

“Those who take part in the supplying of drugs cause substantial harm to the community.

"Officers will continue to work to prosecute those involved in criminal activity and to protect our communities from harm.

“I would like to remind everyone of the dangers of taking unknown pills.

"Despite appearances, there is no way of knowing exactly what you are putting into your body and whether it is safe.

“If you (or someone with you) has any problems after taking drugs, seek medical attention immediately by ringing 999.”

Anyone who has suspicions over drug dealing in their local area are being urged to report it by calling 101.
