Alert message sent 22/02/2019 11:01:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

We’ve arrested two 15-year-olds from London on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs. 

Officers from the Dedicated Crime Team attended an address in Penhill yesterday, following concerns regarding a vulnerable person associated with the address. 

Inside the address, officers located two 15-year-old boys who were seen to be acting suspiciously and appeared to be attempting to conceal items. 

Searches of the two individuals were carried out and they were found to be in possession of a large amount of cash and mobile phones.

A hammer and large kitchen knife were also located inside the property. 

The two teenagers were arrested and taken to Gablecross custody for questioning where they remain.

Sergeant Danny Salmon said: “This incident is a good example of the public acting as our eyes and ears and alerting us to suspicious behaviour at an address. When we receive information of this nature, we will take action as quickly as possible to ensure vulnerable people within our communities are protected from the threats associated with county lines drug gangs. 

“We continue to urge members of the public to report any suspicions they may have that drug dealing is taking place – call us on 101 or 999 in an emergency. If you are also concerned for a person’s vulnerability and safety, please also contact us on 101.”
