A suspected drugs deal in Brighton has been disrupted by police and sniffer dog.

At about 8.40pm on Wednesday 5 July, police were called to May Road where two men were seen to run from the scene.

PC Hewson, assisted by five-year-old PD Troy, also a German Shepherd general purpose dog, carried out a search of the area and located a man hiding in a wooden shed in nearby allotments.

The 21-year-old man from Hove was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs, and has been released under investigation.

There was no trace of any further suspects, however a search of a car park in the area led to the discovery of a quantity of a suspected Class A substance from within the wheel of a silver Vauxhall Astra, which was seized for evidence.
