Officers from the North Hull team have carried out warrants at three addresses in Hull today as part of their continued commitment to tackling drug crime in the city.
Addresses on 6th Avenue, Ripley Close and Homethorpe were searched this morning as part of the warrants.
Officers found a quantity of suspected class B drugs at the address on 6th Avenue where one man was arrested on suspicion of possession of drugs with intent to supply. He has been released under investigation whilst enquiries continue.
What is believed to be a cannabis farm was found at the address on Ripley Close, the plants have now been seized and an investigation is underway.
Local Neighbourhood Sergeant Jamie Campbell said: “The impact that drugs and drug related crime can have on a community should not be underestimated and it is something that we take incredibly seriously.
“The drugs that we have seized today will now never see the streets, helping to disrupt the supply not only in North Hull, but undoubtedly in other parts of the city as well.
“The action today came as a result of information given to us by the local community and I would like to thank people for coming forward and sharing information with us.
“We know what a fantastic city Hull is and we will not tolerate anyone trying to ruin that by bringing drugs into the area.
“We will continue carrying out warrants, seizing drugs and making arrests wherever we have information about people being involved in drug related crime.
