Hull: Large haul of controlled drugs found at house

A warrant executed under the Misuse of Drugs Act this morning (29/06/18) at an address in Hull has recovered a significant amount of drugs and stolen property.

Humberside Police’s proactive team attended the property on Colridge Street in east Hull this morning. Sports holdalls weighing in excess of 10 kilogrammes containing the drug ‘Spice’ were seized.

Tens of thousands of pills including Diazepam, Valium and Viagra as well as a significant quantity of amphetamines were also found.

During the warrant a large amount of stolen goods were discovered that, it’s believed, are linked to a number of burglaries and thefts in the city.

Information and intelligence was gathered at the house which led to another Hull property where over £1000 worth of a class A drug thought to be cocaine was seized, as well as drugs paraphernalia.

Two men and a woman have been arrested on suspicion of possessing illegal drugs with intent to supply.

Inspector Paul Bennett from Humberside Police’s proactive team said: “This is a huge result for us. I firstly want to congratulate the officers for their tireless work and effort in gathering information to enable us to execute this warrant.

“We have uncovered a large amount of drugs and stolen property at the premises which was used as a storage facility as well as for supply.

“The sheer amount we’ve seized will take some time to process. We are confident we have disrupted the supply of a large amount of controlled drugs that could have seen their way onto our streets and further afield.

“We won’t stop tracking down those individuals who are involved in drugs crimes, and we still want any information to be passed onto us so we can continue to achieve successes like this.

“Call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
