Sidmouth Police Sergeant Andy Turner told the Sidmouth Herald: “Two local officers from Sidmouth police station were on patrol on November 7, 2009, and under stop and search powers, after forming a reasonable suspicion, stopped Nunn in High Street at 23.55 hours.”
Sgt Turner told town councillors during his monthly report on Monday: “This sends out a strong message that we will not tolerate drug dealers.
“I commend my officers, who have spent the best part of this year putting this job together.”
