More than 30 people were searched by police following a drugs dog operation in Peterborough. Two dogs and their plain clothed handlers patrolled in the city centre and Millfield on Friday and Saturday nights, May 18 and 19, as part of the force’s work against illegal drugs in the county. They were supported by uniformed officers and Special Constables.
Of those searched, seven were warned for possession of cannabis and two were arrested: a 22-year-old man who was later cautioned for possession of ketamine and a 26-year-old man on suspicion of possessing a class A drug with intent to supply and possessing cannabis with intent to supply who was bailed until July 9.
Sergeant Stuart Saunders, who organised the patrols, said: “The drugs dogs allow us to disrupt street level dealing and misuse and this weekend’s operation was a success. It followed a similar operation earlier this year and there will be more in future. They provide value for money, particularly thanks to the support we receive from the Special Constabulary and the Specials themselves gain valuable experience.”
