POLICE from the Violent Crime Taskforce seized drugs and arrested two men for supply after they were stopped in Acton on Tuesday afternoon (27).

They noticed a passenger on a moped not wearing a helmet while riding along Sixth Avenue, an area known for moped robberies.

The rider and pillion passenger, men aged 23 and 19, were stopped for a search.

Police found Class B drugs and mobile phones with texts that discussed the supply of Class A and B drugs and the men were arrested.

Subsequent searches at one of the home addresses revealed suspected ecstasy and MDMA. The substances await testing.

Det Insp Domenica Catino said: “Our officers are patrolling in areas known for violence and drugs and are actively seeking to target those who cause harm and distress in our community.

“Thanks to the use of stop and search, we have taken a significant amount of drugs off the streets and prevented them from fuelling associated violence.”
