If they are dealing drug filth then lets hope this is not fake news and the police have arrested these low life scum. We don’t want people thinking the island is an easy touch for making money on selling filth here.

The story implies West Midlands Police came during lockdown from a very infectious area to the island to arrest 3 people, if that is the case then, what a risk to the island and a total waste of money. No wonder the Police part of the council tax is always going up above inflation rate.

All over the island Steve, not just Sandown. Unfortunately these types are increasing in numbers recently. I think they think the island is an easy way to make quick money from selling filthy drugs. WRONG, the decent island residents will report any unwanted behaviour.
