Two men from London found by police at an address of a vulnerable person in Weymouth have been arrested.

Officers were carrying out a safe and wellness check on a resident at a property in Wyke.

Class A drugs and a quantity of cash was found on one of the suspects.

Police say enquiries are still continuing to establish where the money came from and if its connected to suspected criminal activity.

A spokesman from Weymouth & Portland Police said:

"Our colleagues from the Economic Crime Unit attended Court to start the process of seizing the money under the Proceeds of Crime Act. 

"It will be for suspects to prove that the money has come from legitimate means."
