A man has been charged with drugs offences after being arrested by police on patrol in Crawley.
Officers were conducting proactive patrols in the Green Lane area of the town on Monday 1 August when they witnessed some suspicious behaviour.
They conducted a stop and search under the Misuse of Drugs Act in nearby Hollybush Road and seized several wraps of crack cocaine and heroin.
