A man and woman have been arrested and a large quantity of what is believed to be cannabis has been seized following a warrant at an address in Little Michael Street, Grimsby.
Officers targeted the address this morning, following reports from a number of members of the public who were concerned the property was being used for drug-related crime.
And they didn’t even have to break down the door, as the occupants opened it for them when they saw them heading down the path.
A 31-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs and possession with intent to supply drugs other than Class A.
A 29-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply drugs other than Class A.
Sergeant Lorraine Paterson said: “Drug related crime can have a huge impact on our communities and we won’t tolerate it.
“I’d like to thank everyone who contacted us with concerns about this address and I’d urge anyone with concerns about criminal activity in their area to do the same.
“You may not see us act on it straight away but please don’t think we’re ignoring you – there’s always lots of work going on behind the scenes.
“We put together all the information we receive to build up the bigger picture, establish if there are links to any other investigations and – most importantly – to make sure that we get the best possible result for the community when we do go through the door.
“Today we have recovered a number of mobile phones, a large quantity of what we believe to be cannabis and arrested two people.
“My team are also speaking to those living and working nearby to let them know about the action we’ve taken to day and reassure them about any concerns they may have.”
