A woman was arrested in Ludgershall last week once officers received intelligence that a vehicle was being employed to move drugs.

At around 10.45pm on August 22nd, officers stopped a Mercedes Benz on the A342 Andover Road, Ludgershall, close to the Hampshire border.

A search of the vehicle was completed with the help of working dog ted and his handler PC Sam Dutton, and variety of baggage containing category A drugs was situated.

A further search was conducted at an address in Ludgershall, where further category a drugs, money and details of local renowned drug dealers were located at the address.

A 33-year-old lady was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to provide category A drugs.

Inspector Liz Coles said: “This was an excellent piece of policing work by all those involved, including police dog Ted.

Local officers had received information to suggest that a vehicle was being used to transport illegal drugs around the local area. As a result of this information, we were able to locate and stop the vehicle, and seize a quantity of class A drugs and cash.”

“Our enquiries into this specific incident will continue, but I would urge anyone who suspects drug activity to be taking place to contact us to help improve our intelligence picture so we can take appropriate action.”
