Four people have been arrested after a two-day drug operation in Buckingham.

A home in Western Avenue was raided this morning and a 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of a class B drug, cannabis, and was issued with a cannabis warning.

On Friday, officers raided Buckingham Skate Park and two people were detained on suspicion of possession of cannabis.

A man was issued with a street caution and a 17-year-old boy was referred to the youth offending team.

Also on Friday, a 33-year-old man and a 17-year-old girl, both from Buckingham, were arrested and bailed until November 11 while a 30-year-old man from Buckingham was issued with a caution for possession of cannabis/cannabis resin.

Buckingham neighbourhood inspector James Davies said: “Operation Awareness aims to disrupt drugs supply in the town and anyone who is found to have committed offences will be detained by officers and dealt with robustly.

“As part of this ongoing operation, officers will continue to target those who are dealing illegal drugs which cause misery to the lives of those in the community.

“We take reports of this nature seriously and if anyone sees any suspicious activity which may be linked to drug supply please phone police on 101.”
