Man charged after officers find cocaine and firearm during raid

Craig Richards, 37, of Mount Idol View, Bexhill, was charged with possession of a firearm without a certificate, possession of firearms ammunition without a certificate, acquiring or using criminal property, and being concerned in the supply of a class A drug, namely cocaine. He has now been remanded in custody in East Sussex.

The incident occurred on February 25 when officers executed a search warrant at a premises in London Road, Mountfield, near Robertsbridge, at approximately 10:30 a.m.

All items were seized by the police, and armed response officers later apprehended a man on the A27 near Offington Lane, Worthing, at about 4:40 p.m. on the same day.

Superintendent Adam Hays spoke about the incident, stating that “This was a significant discovery of class A drugs and a firearm. Officers from across the force quickly arrested a suspect once his location had been identified. A man has been charged in connection with the offences.

“We continue to encourage residents to report suspicious behaviour and drug-dealing to Sussex Police online or via CrimeStoppers anonymously.”
