A 15-year-old Hove boy and a 16-year-old girl from Crawley were arrested by police officers on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of cannabis and burglary with intent to steal and a 16-year-old girl from Brighton, was detained on suspicion of burglary with intent to steal on Thursday (16 August). They were questioned and released under investigation.

On Friday (17 August) a 23-year-old Brighton man was arrested after he ran from police officers through the children’s play area at The Level. He was detained on suspicion of possession with intent to supply cannabis after a large quantity of the drug worth several hundreds of pounds was seized (pictured) along with cash and other drugs paraphernalia. He was also arrested on suspicion of possession of heroin. He has also been released under investigation.

Chief Inspector Rachel Swinney said:

“Our prevention officers, who play a crucial role in helping tackle local issues, have been targeting suspected drug dealers at The Level using high visibility patrols, covert patrols and our passive drugs dog. We are also trying to identify drug users to direct them to agencies who can support them.

“If anyone suspects drug dealing is going on or has any information about it please contact us.”

You can report suspicious behaviour or drug dealing at our website or ring 101.
For advice and information about drugs see the Sussex Police drug advice page.

* Prevention teams play a crucial role in helping tackle local issues and where possible prevent them happening in the first place. The recent council tax increase will be used to strengthen these local teams.
