Three men arrested following police drugs raid in Battle

THREE men in their early twenties have been arrested following a drugs raid at an address in Battle.

Police stormed the address in Asten Fields on Thursday July 3.

Three men, aged 22, 20 and 21, were found inside the property when the raid was carried out.

All were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a Class B drug.

The trio were later released on police bail until September 8.

Rother District Commander Chief Inspector Warren Franklin said: “This drugs warrant is an excellent result and highlights to members of the public that we do not tolerate drug dealing in Rother and will take action against those who think they can get away with it.

“We will always fully investigate reports from members of the public relating to these kinds of offences and would encourage anybody with any suspicions to always make contact with police.”
