Humberside Police Operation Galaxy update:
A total of 94 people have been arrested in just six days as part of the latest phase of Operation Galaxy – four of which are already behind bars.
The arrests follow Friday, 4 December’s launch of another month of intensive action to target those causing the most harm in our communities and of those arrested so far, 27 have been charged.
Those arrested are suspected to be involved in a wide range of offences, including:
We have carried out warrants at properties across the force and, as a result drugs with a street value of more than £235,000 and a wide range of weapons – from knuckle dusters to knives and tasers – are now safely out of the hands of suspected criminals and off our streets.
Our teams also seized £32,500 in cash and a number of vehicles we suspect to have been stolen, including two motorbikes, four cars, a boat and three push bikes.
Still more suspects have been voluntarily interviewed in relation to ongoing investigations, whilst out on the roads our officers have carried out more than 200 roadside breath tests – five of which were positive.
And we have no intention of slowing down now, so keep checking back for more updates on all the latest.
Those who have been charged* are:
*Court details are included where we have them available. Those jailed are remanded awaiting court dates or have been recalled to prison.
