Halstead: Three arrested on suspicion of supplying Class A drugs
Three people have been arrested on suspicion of supplying Class A drugs when police searched a house in Halstead.
Local officers supported by specialist armed officers searched a house in Colchester Road shortly before 3pm yesterday.
A section of the road was closed while police carried out initial investigations.
A quantity of suspected Class A drugs were found during a search of the property.
A 48-year-old woman and 41-year-old man, both from Halstead, and a 21 year-old man from Manor Park, east London, were all arrested on suspicion of possessing a Class A drug with intent to supply.
The search warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act was obtained by police following public concerns about drug dealing in the Braintree police district.
Further enquiries are continuing.
