Police carried out a drugs warrant in the Batchwood area of St Albans as part of Operation Scorpion.

The drugs warrant took place at 10.45am yesterday in Ladies Grove, with officers acting on a tip-off from members of the public.

Officers from the Operation Scorpion team were joined by the Safer Neighbourhood Team and a housing representative from St Albans council to search the property with drug-detecting dog.

PC Jenna Hutchinson said: “We acted on information that we had gathered as well as information from members of the public.

“No drugs were found but I’d like to encourage residents to always let us know about suspicious activity and know that we will act on that information.”
