Specialist Enforcement Unit (SEU) officers found class A drugs and cash after searching the home of an e-scooter rider seen acting suspiciously in Littlehampton.

The officers were on patrol in the town to help disrupt the supply of drugs and anti-social behaviour at 4.30pm on Monday, November 8.

They witnessed a suspected drugs exchange in Old Market Street, and believed an electric scooter rider was responsible for selling the drugs.

Officers later saw the e-scooter rider in the High Street, travelling towards Old Market Street again and detained him.

They found the rider, a 25-year-old man from Littlehampton, in possession of cannabis.

The suspect’s home was then searched and officers found further quantities of cannabis as well as quantities of cocaine.

They also found approximately £1,000 in cash, two sets of electric scales, multiple small plastic grip seal dealing bags, and a large Zombie style knife.
