Two teenagers and a woman arrested as police raid homes in Slough as part of drug investigation

Three people – including a 16-year-old boy – have been arrested in Slough after police raided three homes in the town.

Officers swooped on three different addresses in the town on Friday as part of an investigation into drug supply and anti-social behaviour.

Three arrests have been made – a 32-year-old Slough woman, a 16-year-old Reading boy and a 17-year-old male from Slough.

The woman and the 16-year-old were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs.

The other boy was arrested on suspicion of possession of class A and B drugs.

Inspector Matthew Lugg of the Slough Problem Solving Team said: “We have executed these warrants as part of Thames Valley Police’s Stronghold commitment to tackling serious violence and organised crime.

“The presence of officers today is part of ongoing work to disrupt and eradicate drug dealing and the associated criminal activity that it breeds, which negatively impacts on the quality of life of the residential and business community within the Slough town centre area.

“We would ask that if the public do have any information please report it to 101, or make a report online.

“Or if they wish to remain anonymous they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
