A police sniffer dog helped recover half a kilo of cocaine in a rural East Sussex village.

PD Rhodi sniffed out the Class A drug, which weighed approximately 600 grams, during a search warrant at a property in Broad Oak, Brede, on Saturday 28 January.

The three-year-old Cocker Spaniel also assisted officers from Rother Neighbourhood Policing Team in finding cannabis and a large quantity of cash, which was hidden in a cupboard.

Scales and phones were also seized as part of the operation.

It resulted in a 34-year-old man from Rye being arrested on suspicion of being in possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of Class A – cocaine, being in possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of class B – cannabis and being in possession of an offensive weapon in a public place.

He has been released on unconditional bail until 28 April.

Inspector Olivia Carroll, of the Rother Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “We executed multiple warrants at two properties in response to concerns from the public about drug activity in the area.

“It led to an arrest and the seizure of a significant amount of drugs and cash. A comprehensive investigation will now follow.

“We will continue to work tenaciously to stop the supply of drugs coming into our towns and villages and disrupt criminal activity. I would encourage the public to continue reporting information to us online via our website or by calling 101.”
