A WOMAN was arrested in Ludgershall last week after officers received intelligence that a vehicle was being used to transport drugs.

At about 10.45pm on August 22, officers stopped a car on the A342 Andover Road, Ludgershall, near the Hampshire border.

A search of the vehicle was carried out with the assistance of police dog Ted and his handler PC Sam Dutton, and a number of bags containing class A drugs were discovered.

A further search was conducted at an address in Ludgershall, where further class A drugs, cash and details of local known drug dealers were located.

A woman was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs.

She has since been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

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.”
