A man and a teenager have been arrested on suspicion of supplying drugs from the home of a vulnerable male in his 50s living in Morford Street, Bath.

It is thought the pair took over the home of the man and used it as a base for the dealings, in a process known as 'cuckooing'.

On Tuesday the 17th July, police became concerned about the owner of the home, as he is known as a vulnerable adult, and upon forcing entry found a large amount of both heroin and crack cocaine.

Officers also seized a home-made cosh and a machete from the property.

Bath police ask the community to get in touch with any concerns about vulnerable individuals. The arrested pair have been released pending further enquiries.
