The window had been smashed in Wolfitt Avenue, Balderton, on 4 August at around 9.50 am when a wrench was used to put it through.

“I am also pleased a suspect has been arrested on suspicion of these very serious offences but our investigation continues.

“As a force, we continue to work hard every day to catch suspected drug dealers, place them before the courts and seize and destroy the drugs they try to peddle to vulnerable people in our communities.”
