Three apprehended in Pinvin drug bust

Evesham Editorial 28th Jun, 2024   0

THREE people have been arrested at an address in Pinvin near Pershore this morning (Friday, June 27) following a drugs warrant.

Two men, aged 46 and 43, and a woman aged 36 were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A Drugs.

The 46-year-old man and the 36-year-old woman were additionally arrested for the possession of a firearm, handling stolen goods and animal cruelty.

During the search a vast amount of what is believed to be stolen retail property, Class A drugs and a taser were seized. A dog was seized at the property under the Animal Welfare Act.

All three are currently in custody and further enquiries are being carried out. The drugs warrant was executed by Evesham Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) in partnership with Task Force.

Sergeant Duncan Eades, of Evesham SNT, said “This morning we executed a warrant in Pinvin, suspected to be linked to drug dealing in the village.




“This involved teams from the force working together as we seek to tackle those who deal drugs here which have a harmful impact on the communities we protect and serve.

“Drug dealers prey on some of the most vulnerable people in society and their presence in turn causes more crime such as shoplifting, burglary and anti-social behaviour.


“Our actions were in response to residents’ concerns and police intelligence work. We will always act upon information given to us as we continue ongoing efforts to drive criminality away from the town.”
