Hull: Officers used stop and search powers leading to arrests

Men charged with drugs offences

Two men have appeared in court this morning (Saturday 14th April) following a police operation in Hull on Friday.

Working on information received, our officers stopped and searched a man in the Preston Road area of Hull under section 23 of the Misuse of Drugs Act.  The man was arrested and found to be in possession of a large amount of class A drugs.

A search of a nearby property led to the arrest of another man and our officers seizing further quantities of class A drugs and a large amount of cash.

Drugs recovered were estimated to have a street value of £10,000.

Two men appeared at Hull Magistrates Court this morning following the arrests and were charged as follows:

Mark Andrew Rowell (49) of Bessingby Grove, Hull was charged with possession of class A drugs with intent to supply.

Peter Hayes (27) of Hawkins Street, Liverpool was also charged with possession of class A drugs with intent to supply and a further charge under the Proceeds of Crime Act relating to £2000 in cash considered to be criminal property.
