Two arrested for drug offences in Trowbridge

Wiltshire Police (UK) - Mon, 09/11/2017 - 17:10

Two men were arrested for drug offences in Trowbridge at the weekend following a foot chase by officers.

At approximately 8.10pm on Saturday 9 September, officers attempted to stop a vehicle in the Tesco car park, County Way, following concerns the occupants had been involved in drug supply.

One of the occupants of the vehicle decamped and gave chase when he saw officers. He ran along the footpath by the river Biss and into Biss Meadows, a wooded area on the riverbank. He was eventually detained.

During this time, a search was carried out of the vehicle the man was believed to have been in and a large amount of cash was located. The vehicle smelt strongly of cannabis.

When the man was taken to custody, officers found suspected class A drugs and further cash. He was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A and B drugs and money laundering.

A second man who had also been in the vehicle was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply class B drugs and possession of class B, and money laundering.

Both were taken to Melksham custody and have since been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

Anyone who saw the vehicle, or the men in the area, should call police on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Robbery in Chippenham car park - appeal for witnesses

Wiltshire Police (UK) - Mon, 09/11/2017 - 14:48

We're investigating a robbery which took place in Chippenham town centre.

At approximately 8.40pm on Friday 8 September, a 17-year-old male was stood next to his moped in the car park near to Tesco Metro at the rear of Emery Gate.

Three men, believed to be aged in their late teens to early twenties, approached the 17-year-old and demanded he hand over his mobile phone. One of the men then punched the victim in the face causing minor bruising.

The victim then handed over his phone - a gold iPhone 5s.

The suspect is described as white, approximately 6 ft tall, of slim build with blonde facial stubble. He was wearing a grey beanie hat and a dark coloured tracksuit.

Detective Constable Gemma Lumley, of Central CID, said: "The victim was left really upset by this incident - fortunately, he wasn't seriously injured but was left really shaken by what happened.

"We are carrying out a really detailed investigation into this incident which took place in the town centre - it is likely there would have been people about at the time.

"I'd like to appeal to any witnesses or anyone who may have seen the group prior to or after the incident, as well as anybody who may recognise the suspect from the description, to get in touch via 101."

Information can also be left anonymously with Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Assault in Bythesea Road, Trowbridge

Wiltshire Police (UK) - Mon, 09/11/2017 - 14:21

A 15-year-old boy and an 18-year-old man have been arrested following an incident in Bythesea Road, Trowbridge.

Shortly after 9pm on 8 September, a 20-year-old man was at the bus stop opposite Kwik Fit when a group cycled past him. One of the members of this group then approached the man and assaulted him. He was then joined by several other members of the group who punched and kicked the man.

The man sustained cuts to his face and attended the Royal United Hospital following the assault.

Descriptions of the offenders were passed to officers and two males both from Trowbridge were arrested on suspicion of GBH. They were taken to Melksham custody and have since been released under investigation.

Detective Constable Keith Harford said: “It appears that this attack was unprovoked and the man did not know the attackers.

“If you witnessed the assault and have not yet spoken to police, please call 101. We have arrested two males and our enquiries are continuing.”

Alternatively, information can be left with Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

He sustained injuries to his nose and ear.
