The discovery was made after police visited an address in Porthill on Monday to arrest a man after a car was stopped in Shrewsbury in August and a quantity of cannabis was found inside the vehicle.

Once inside the property police discovered what is believed to be cocaine and cannabis worth thousands of pounds. Cash was also seized by officers.

A 21-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply.

It’s believed the drugs were intended to be sold to children and young people.

Detective Sergeant Alex Sullivan said: “This is a significant amount of drugs, which we believe were intended to be sold to children and young people, taken off our street and is part of our on-going effort to pursue those involved in exploiting children and young people as part of our Protect campaign.”

Information about drugs and drug supply can be reported to the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
