POLICE have this morning delivered an early Christmas present to suspected drug dealers - when they charged down the front door and executed their latest search warrant.

At the crack of dawn 10 police officers swarmed a first floor flat in Kinderley Road, Wisbech, and discovered several bags of cannabis and a small amount of other drugs, believed to be Class A or Class B. A knife was also seized from a car owned by the tenants.

An 18-year-old man and a 28-year-old man were arrested at the flat.

The teenager has been cautioned for possession of cannabis. The 28-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possessing drugs and has been bailed to return to Wisbech Police Station on February 3.
