Drugs dog searches bring good news - Witney

A joint operation between Thames Valley Police and West Oxfordshire District Council to crack down on illegal drugs in Witney town centre took place on Friday night (8/12).

During the evening specially trained search dogs were taken around licensed premises in Witney town centre as part of an ongoing operation by the Police and District Council to keep drugs out of pubs. A number of premises were visited where the dogs searched the queues of people waiting outside to enter the venue.

"No drugs were found during the operation and no arrests were made which is great news. The searches went extremely well and were positively received from the licensed premises involved who are pleased to see us tackling this important issue", explained Sgt Phil Hampton, who oversaw the operation.
