DRUGS, a stolen bike and more than £1,000 cash were recovered from a property after a police check today.

Officers from the police's dedicated crime team were carrying out a welfare check at an address in Exeter Street when they discovered the items.

About 50 wraps of class A drugs were located within the premises as well as £1,300 cash and a stolen bike.

Two men, one aged 22 from Salisbury and 21 from London, were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs and remain in custody at Melksham police station.

Inspector Pete Sparrow said: “Officers were attending the address in relation to cuckooing – which refers to a vulnerable persons home being taken over by drug dealers who see it as a safe place to deal drugs without being noticed by police. The vulnerable people living at the address are often threatened and unable to leave their homes.

“Today’s arrests show that we are working hard to identify individuals who travel to our city to exploit vulnerable people who struggle with their addiction. Alongside our partners, we will continue to protect the vulnerable and make Salisbury an unattractive place for those people who are intent on dealing misery and creating a demand for other crimes to be committed."
