Police in Newquay have made an arrest as part of a pre-planned operation.
On Wednesday 26 September, officers from Newquay police station, supported by officers from the Force Support Group based at Bodmin, conducted a pre-planned arrest at a property on the Mayfield Estate.
At the property, police arrested a 49-year-old local man. This pre-planned arrest was in connection to an allegation of rape that took place in the town last November.
Inspector Dave Meredith said: “Following the arrest and during a search of the premises, a large number of controlled drugs and money was seized. The suspect was subsequently interviewed by detectives at Newquay police station on suspicion of rape and possession with intent to supply.
“He has now been released under investigation pending further enquiries by Newquay CID.
“This was a significant find of controlled drugs, and the streets of Newquay are a lot safer after this seizure. Police will continue to take robust action against anybody involved in the supply of controlled drugs.
“We continue to ask our public to work with us and help keep our streets safe. You can report criminality to 101 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Members of the public can also provide anonymous information on drug dealers to the police via Crimestoppers 0800 555 111.”
