A MAN has been arrested on suspicion of drug and weapons offences following a visit to a vape store in Evesham. 

The man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a Class B drug – Cannabis and possession of a blade in a public place.

He has since been interviewed and given a bail date to return to Worcester Police Station, which will allow officers time to test items and download phones. 

The arrest happened inside the store following a planned operation, during which Trading Standards also found around £3,000 worth of illegal vapes which they have also seized for their own investigations. 

Police acted after a member of the community contacted them about the store when someone sold a vape to their child. 
West Mercia Police have urged anyone who knows of any stores in Evesham that are selling illicit tobacco or vapes to get in contact with them.
