Officers from the Mansfield Operation Reacher Team – which responds to community intelligence in cracking down on drug activity in the town – stopped a male believed to have been involved in dealing on Crow Hill Drive.

Police say the man was found to be in the possession of a quantity of crack cocaine and was dealt with at Mansfield Police Station.

“Drug dealing will be targeted in and around the Mansfield area and will not be tolerated,” said a police spokesman. “Drugs don’t just ruin the lives of the user, they also ruin the lives of the families they come from.”
