On Wednesday, February 24, officers from Welwyn Hatfield Operation Scorpion stopped a vehicle in Howlands after it was suspected of conducting a drug deal.

Around 70 wraps of suspected crack and heroin were seized, along with hundreds of pounds worth of cash.

“I hope news of this arrest and the seized items is reassuring to the community. The impact that drugs have on the local community cannot be underestimated and we work hard to ensure that the streets of Welwyn Hatfield remain free of drugs and the other criminality that often surrounds it.
“If you suspect drug dealing in your local area, please do not hesitate to report it. The more reports we receive, the better our intelligence picture and our ability to tackle it.”
