Sussex Police hopes the action against people responsible for possessing and supplying drugs within the town will send a clear message to drug dealers.

Chief Inspector Jane Derrick said: “This success re-affirms our commitment not to tolerate the supply and distribution of illegal drugs in this area. If you choose to make life a misery for those who you are dealing to then we will catch up with you. We will use every available opportunity to target you and to make your life as uncomfortable as possible. If you deal drugs in this area you can expect to be arrested, prosecuted and ultimately imprisoned.

“When people become addicted to drugs and in particular hard drugs the affects on the those individuals is evident very quickly. People who become drug dependent will almost always have to turn to crime to fund their addiction and so the social impact is far reaching.”
