Eighty wraps of suspected cocaine have been recovered and three people arrested for drug offences in St Albans yesterday (Monday).

Officers were on patrol in Green Lane at about 6.15pm when they approached two vehicles parked next to each other with a man leaning through a window of the car.

They then searched the cars and found 80 wraps of what is believed to be cocaine.

Two men, aged 20, from Luton and Napsbury, and a 20 year old woman from Hatfield, were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a Class A drug.

PC Mark Chipchase from the ‘Operation Scorpion’ team said: “Whilst there is not a large problem with drugs and drug dealing in the area, we know there are some who are involved in these crimes and we will proactively target people either through intelligence led operations or routine policing to ensure offenders are brought to justice.”
