Three people have been arrested following an investigation into drug supply by the South East Regional Organised Crime Unit (SEROCU).

On Tuesday (11/7), detectives from SEROCU’s Cyber Crime Unit raided addresses in Buckingham and arrested two men aged 34 and 36; and a woman aged 33.

All three, who are from Buckingham, were arrested on suspicion of:

  • Conspiracy to supply a controlled drug of class A, contrary to Section 4(3)(a) of an Schedule 4 to the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971;
  • Conspiracy to supply a controlled drug of a class B, contrary to Section 4(3)(a) of an Schedule 4 to the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971;
  • Conspiracy to money launder, contrary to Proceeds of Crime Act 2002.

The investigation relates to the selling of drugs online, using the Dark Net. Significant quantities of drugs, including MDMA, Ketamine and cannabis were seized during the warrants.

 

Detective Sergeant Rob Bryant, from SEROCU’s Cyber Crime Unit, who led the warrant, said: “Last week’s action came after a detailed investigation into fraud and drug offences online.

“We have seized various quantities of drugs and digital items which will now be examined.

“The action should be a reminder to those that commit criminal acts that we will use our full resources to ensure you are caught and stopped.”

All three were released under investigation.
