Two Tunbridge Wells men have been arrested after a drugs raid at a Southborough home.

Police stormed the property in London Road on December 3, and seized drugs and an Apple laptop computer, which is believed to have been stolen.

A 23 year-old man from Tunbridge Wells was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply cannabis and handling stolen goods. 

A 47 year-old man was arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods and allowing a property to be used to supply cannabis.

Both men were released on police bail until 25 January, pending further investigation.

Using the serial number of the laptop, officers will be looking to return it to its owner. 

Officers recommend that owners of electrical equipment such as computers or mobile phones record serial numbers, and pass these to police if the items are stolen. 

This helps police identify stolen property and reunite owners with their possessions when suspected stolen property is seized.

Detective Constable Nicola Brown from Kent Police said: "Drug use can fuel other crime such as theft and anti-social behaviour. 

"Seizing drugs prevents them from being sold on the streets of Kent and makes the area an even safer place to live in. 

"We are continually targeting drug offences in Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge and we will continue to do so. 

"I would encourage anyone who has any information regarding drug use to report it to police so we can take action."

Information regarding drug use can be reported to police by calling 101, or calling Kent Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
