A TEENAGE boy has been arrested by police investigating reports of drug dealing in Battle.
Officers raided an address in Marley Rise at around 10am last Thursday (October 17).
They found 150 grammes of cannabis and several hundred pounds in cash.
A 17-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of possessing cannabis with intent to supply.
The youth was questioned by police before being released on bail until December.
Last week the Observer reported that police were appealing for the public’s help in tackling the problem of drug dealing in Battle.
Dealers are reported to have been operating in the North Trade Road rec car park, in St Mary’s churchyard, near Battle railway station and in a passageway off the High Street in recent weeks.
Anyone with information about drug dealing is asked to call police on 101.
