Officers from the Salisbury Community Policing Team were in the city centre yesterday (9th July) targeting users.

During the operation, several people were stopped and searched on suspicion of carrying drugs. 

One 35 year-old local man was found to have a small amount of Class A drugs on him in Culver Street car park. 

He has since been invited in for an interview. 

Others were warned about drinking alcohol in contravention of the Public Spaces Protection Order which is in force throughout the city.

It was part of the teams work to stop illegal drug use and anti-social behaviour in Salisbury.

Sgt David Whitby said:  

"As part of our commitment to the people of Salisbury we are carrying out a number of targeted operations like this. 

We are proud of our city and take any reports of illegal drug taking and anti-social behaviour seriously. It's a small number of individuals who try and spoil it for the rest of us and that won't be tolerated.

If you have any concerns about drug use in the area or anti-social drinking please help us by reporting your concerns. 

Even if you think the information you have may be very minor, it is always worth reporting as it could be the missing piece in a bigger jigsaw which could help us disrupt a major drug supply chain or it may help us identify a vulnerable person who may be being exploited." 

The force are now encouraging anyone who knows of any drug related activity going on to report it to them by calling 101

It can also be reported anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
