Three men have been charged with drug offences as a result of proactive patrols by officers over the bank holiday weekend.

Officers from the Southern Impact Team were out in Huntingdon on May 26 when they spotted two men acting suspiciously.

They were searched and arrested on suspicion of drug offences just after midday - and have both now been charged, according to Cambridgeshire police.

Quasim Abbas, 32, of Bradshaw Close, Huntingdon and Arnold Pilgrim, 36, of Elm Close, Huntingdon - have both been charged with possessing criminal property and two counts of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply. After the arrests, the team spotted a man in Cambridge who they also thought was acting suspiciously.

He was arrested near Castle Hill on Sunday evening on suspicion of drug offences and has since been charged.
