Drugs raid in Swanage

Nothing it seems on BBC Dorset or the Echo, but reports of a major drugs bust in Swanage on Saturday night. Two pubs raided, arrests made and further arrests continuing today. I'm sure the Police would be glad to learn of any information that might be considered useful.

Drugs Raids In Purbeck

Ten people have been arrested after drugs raids in Swanage and Poole.

More than 40 officers swooped on a number of properties - including two pubs in Swanage - this morning, and over the weekend.

A quantity of drugs, believed to be class A & class B, were found, along with a a loft full of cannabis plants.

Section Commander for Purbeck police, Inspector Chris Weeks said: "Safer Neighbourhood Officers will be visiting the communities that have been affected by this morning's operation, to provide reassurance.

"Officers will also be distributing information leaflets to those concerned, which will describe what has taken place during the past 48 hours.

"In addition, we will be carrying out high visibility patrols and holding regular forums so that we can listen to any members of our community who still may have concerns."

Allegedly ....

The pubs - Purbeck and White Swan - were visited so that the PO LEASE could chat with customers.

Three houses were raided, one in the High St, just above the Legion ,one in Princess Rd and one somewhere else

Or so I'm told.

Eight arrested after drugs raids

Eight people have been arrested in Dorset after more than 40 police officers raided several addresses in Swanage and one in Poole.

They are being held on suspicion of supplying class A and B drugs, including cocaine and cannabis.

A quantity of drugs were found and a modified loft where plants, believed to be cannabis, were being cultivated.

Six men and a woman, all from Swanage, were arrested along with a man from Poole and were due to be questioned.

All substances found were to be forensically examined.

The raids followed others on Saturday evening when two pubs in Swanage High Street, The White Swan and Purbeck Hotel, were raided.

A 33-year-old man from Swanage and a 55-year-old man from Birmingham were arrested and later bailed.

"we will be carrying out high visibility patrols"

Has anyone seen the new psychedelic uniforms? I trust they will be wearing beetle wigs instead of helmets when chasing pot smokers. Will other parts of the police force be attired in a manner indicative of their function? Suggestions please.
