Tipton drug raid bar still shut

A bar in Tipton remains closed four days after it was the centre of a drugs raid.

Officers in Tipton raided Triple S Bar in Bradleys Lane, Tipton early on Saturday morning following information that drugs were being used and sold at the premises.

They executed the warrant and discovered Class A and Class B drugs worth around £3,000 at the bar, where four men were arrested – a 22-year-old man from Coseley for possession of cocaine and a 35-year old man from Bilston for possession with intent to supply Class A and B drugs. Both were later cautioned for drugs offences.

A 17-year-old from Tipton was arrested for possession of Class B drugs and was bailed until April. A man, 28, from Walsall was arrested for possessing an offensive weapon but was released without charge.
