Drugs dogs joined neighbourhood police officers on Friday night for an operation to tackle drugs offences in Tonbridge.

Officers visited pubs across Tonbridge on Friday 23 November to identify people who were suspected of being in possession of drugs.

They were joined by police drugs dogs and officers from the force's Special Constabulary, who are volunteers from local communities, who have been trained as police officers.

In total, four men were given cannabis warnings, after being found in possession of a small amount of cannabis after the drugs dog indicated that they had drugs on them. 

A 20 year-old man from Tunbridge Wells was given a police caution after being found in possession of amphetamine.

Sergeant Mark Ginsberg from Kent Police said: "We regularly run this operation in Tonbridge and surrounding areas and it is designed to locate people who are in possession of drugs, seize those drugs, and deal with the offenders. 

"Tonbridge is a safe place to live and to socialise, and taking drugs off the streets makes the town even safer. We will continue to run this operation, especially in the lead up to the Christmas and New Year festivities."
