THREE properties were raided by police in an on-going crackdown on drugs.

Officers executed a search warrant on three addresses in central Bognor following tip-offs.

No arrests were made after the raids on Thursday morning but the investigation is on-going.

Inspector Nick Bowman, from the town’s neighbourhood policing unit, said: ‘We responded swiftly to information we received about criminal activity in our area by people who we believe are bringing their business of dealing illegal drugs to this district.

‘Our message is clear – if you deal drugs in this area we will catch up with you, we will stop you and we will bring you to justice.

‘We obviously need the full support of residents to help us combat this criminality and we are very grateful to the community.’
