A MAN has been charged with a series of drugs and weapons offences after a vehicle was stopped in Harlow. 

The vehicle was stopped by officers in Third Avenue as a result of other enquiries yesterday afternoon, Wednesday 4 October. 

A man was subsequently arrested on suspicion of drugs and weapons offences. 

As part of the investigation, officers who searched the vehicle and an address of interest have seized a number of significant items, including knives, money and drugs. 

Amos Oyegunle, 30, of Abbotts Drive, Waltham Abbey, has been charged with possession with intent to supply cocaine, being concerned in the supply of heroin, two counts of possession of an offensive weapon in a public place, three counts of possession of an offensive weapon in a private place and possession with intent to supply cannabis. 

He is due to appear at Chelmsford Magistrates’ Court today, Thursday 5 October. 

Inspector Mark Jones, of our West Operation Raptor team, said: “Our teams are working day-in, day-out to target those people and groups causing harm to our communities.

“This is a significant step forward in this investigation and it shows our commitment to keeping our communities safe across the west of Essex.”

Pity there seems no news that the Police have any chance to arrest those who supplied this non Harlow person with the drugs in the first place and so on back to the source. One hopes they police are given the manpower and resources and are working on it. Equally that those who are addicted are traced and supported to kick the habit.
