Banbury Cake: Man is arrested after drugs raid Man is arrested after drugs raid

A MAN was arrested on suspicion of drug dealing after police raided his Banbury home.

Officers used a battering ram to break in the door of the house in Lidsey Road just after 10.30am yesterday.

Fourteen officers were involved as all rooms in the three-bedroom house were searched and a “fairly large” quantity of cannabis was seized along with drugs paraphernalia including scales, said a police spokesman.

Two cars parked outside were also searched but nothing was found in either vehicle. A 42-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply cannabis.

He was led away in handcuffs and taken to Banbury police station for questioning.

Two other people were in the property at the time but neither was arrested.

Sgt Katrina Hibbert said: “It’s a positive result.”
