TWO teenagers were arrested in Salisbury over the supply of class A drugs.

The youths – one aged 17 from London and one aged 16 from Kent – had both been reported missing by their local police forces and were found by officers conducting a welfare check at an address in Kivel Court on Thursday (December 5).

Two knives were also seized from the address, as well as drugs, cash and phones.

Inspector Pete Sparrow said: “This was excellent work by local officers, the Dedicated Crime Team and the Community Tasking Team. We do not believe these two individuals had any reason to be in the area and we believe they had travelled to the city solely to supply class A drugs to vulnerable users.

“This behaviour will simply not be tolerated and Salisbury should not be seen as somewhere to go to deal drugs under the police radar.

“While our enquiries are ongoing, these two teenagers have been released under investigation.

“We’d urge anyone who suspects drug activity in their neighbourhood to report their concerns to 101 – the information you provide will help us tackle drug use and supply in our community.”
