Three arrests after drugs warrants

POLICE arrested two men after uncovering a stash of Class A drugs in a Priory Road home.

The pair, aged 45 and 16, have not been named but were detained by police after officers used a warrant to gain entry to the house.

They were taken to the police station for interview and released on bail while forensic tests confirm whether or not the substance discovered is, as suspected, an illegal drug.

Elsewhere, officers arrested another man, aged 21, after packs of herbal cannabis were found at a Woodland Vale Road address in St Leonards.

Officers found six ‘deals’ of the drug, each with a street value of around £10, and a wad of cash and more drugs.

He was also released on bail while specialist tests take place on the drugs.

All three men are due to return to Hastings Police Station in February.
