A 31-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of possessing a Class A drug after police carried out warrants to target drug suppliers.

Thames Valley Police has carried out two warrants in Aylesbury this week as part of an ongoing operation to tackle the use of the drug mephedrone.

Officers carried out the warrants in Aylesbury as part of Operation Awareness which aims to target the drugs suppliers and divert users.

At 11.15am on Tuesday, January 27 police officers along with a police dog and handler searched a property in Coxhill Way, Aylesbury.

A second property in Bardon Green was also the next day, at 11.40am on Wednesday, January 28.

The warrants resulted in the arrest of a 31-year-old woman from Aylesbury on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance – Class A.

She was later released on police bail until Wednesday, February 11.

Insp James Davies of Aylesbury Vale said: “Operation Awareness is here for the long term, until we make significant in-roads into the supply of mephedrone to our communities.

“Funding a mephedrone habit can lead to crimes such as thefts from vehicles or shops where offenders can sell on stolen items or exchange them for drugs.

“As well as undertaking enforcement activity we have been working in partnership with Aylesbury Vale District Council and housing providers.

“This has culminated in the use of relatively new powers granted under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 to issue dispersal orders and close premises linked to anti-social behaviour.

“If you have any information that can keep Aylesbury Vale safe for your families then please contact us.”

If you have any information relating to mephedrone use and supply in Aylesbury Vale, please contact the police immediately on 101.
