On Tuesday 18th May a total of three men and two women have been arrested in connection with supplying Class A drugs following three warrants in Hull.
A large quantity of class A drugs were recovered across the three addresses searched.
A 48-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of being concerned with the supply of drugs and possession with intent to supply class A drugs on Sandale Close, Hull.
Two people, a 34-year-old man and 35-year-old women were arrested at a property on Weeton Way, Anlaby and a 50-year-old woman and a 29-year-old man at a property on Beverley Road, Hull were also arrested.
Detective Sergeant Matt Grantham said: “County Lines is a key priority for the force and our action against drug gangs remain ongoing.
“Work like this, alongside our partnering agencies allows us to protect those who may have become victims of criminal exploitation.
“Vulnerable people, often teenagers and sometimes children, are exploited into becoming involved in organised criminality, and communities can become overwhelmed with illicit substances and anti-social behaviour that often comes from drug use and dealing.
“The community impact this type offending has is the reason we will continue to do everything we can to disrupt these criminal networks removing them and the drugs they supply and distribute from our streets.
“I would like to thank members of the public who have provided us with information so far and would appeal for anyone who believes they have any information that may be able to assist with our action against drugs to contact us on 101.
“Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you don’t feel comfortable speaking to police and would prefer to stay anonymous.”
