Dawn drugs raids have seen two men arrested this morning.

Police forced entry to two addresses in St Helier Avenue this morning, while also targeting an address in Clensham Lane, off Sutton Common Road.

At one address in St Helier Avenue a 29-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of drugs, while at the other a bag of suspected cannabis was discovered.

In Clensham Lane a 19-year-old was arrested for handling stolen goods.

The two men arrested have been taken to a south London police station.

The raids are part of an on-going summer crackdown on criminal activities in the borough.

Acting Chief Inspector Neil Tyre said: "We will not tolerate drugs in the borough - and our residents do not want them either.

"You will be caught if you use or supply drugs and brought before the courts."

If you have any information about drugs activities, or any other criminal activity, call Sutton police station on 101.
