Crack cocaine with a street value of £2,000 was seized from drug dealers working in Cottonmill Lane playing fields, St Albans.

Two eagle-eyed PCSOs spotted two men acting suspiciously in the fields on Tuesday.

They found the men were in possession of more than 100 wraps, suspected to be Class A crack cocaine.

The two men, both 21 and from Luton, were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs. They have been released under investigation pending further enquiries.

If you see suspicious behaviour or suspect drugs are involved, you can report information online, speak to an operator in the Force Communications Room via the online web chat or call the non-emergency number 101.
