Two men have been arrested and one charged after police carried out a drug search at a home in Leiston yesterday.

Officers went to a house in Harling Way at around 3pm, to carry out the warrant, and detained two men.

During the search, more than 140 wraps of class A drugs were found.

Both men were arrested on suspicion of possession of class A drugs with intent to supply, and taken into custody where they were interviewed by officers.

Kevin Wright, 46, of Harling Way, was subsequently charged with possession of heroin with intent to supply, and possession of crack cocaine with intent to supply.

He was held in custody overnight and due before magistrates in Norwich this morning.

A 19-year-old from north east London has been bailed until September 23 while enquiries continue.
