Alert message sent 20/06/2019 15:50:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

Four suspected drug dealers have been arrested at an address in Salisbury today. 

Officers were called to an address in a street off Queen Alexandra Road at approximately 10.50am today due to concerns that the occupant was being ‘cuckooed’. 

Cuckooing involves drug dealers taking over the home of a vulnerable person in order to use it as a base for drug dealing. 

Officers attended the address to carry out a welfare check on the occupant, and found four men inside the property. Phones and cash were seized.

The four men, believed to all be in their 20s and from the London area, have been arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs.

They are currently in Melksham custody for further questioning. 

PC Matt Roberts said: “This is an example of just how important it is to report any concerns regarding suspected drug activity to the police so we can take action and not only arrest individuals, but protect vulnerable people within our communities at the same time.

“Officers acted quickly following this initial report and were able to attend the scene and locate four individuals in the property who were subsequently arrested and are now in custody.  Our enquiries continue.”

To report drug activity, call 101.
