Two arrested after drugs raid at Cleethorpes home

Police have arrested two men following an Operation Galaxy raid which resulted in a Class A drugs find at a Cleethorpes home.

The raid was carried out as part of intensified activity by Humberside Police’s Operation Galaxy team, at a property on Arundel Place in Cleethorpes.

Heroin and crack cocaine were found and seized at the property.

A small amount of cannabis, methadone, and mobile phones were also discovered.

Two men, aged 31 and 45, were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply.

A spokesperson for the force said:

“Two men remain in custody today on suspicion of dealing in class A drugs following the latest action from our Operation Galaxy team.

“The men, aged 45 and 31, were both arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs as a result of a warrant at a property in Arundel Place, Cleethorpes.

“What is believed to heroin and crack cocaine were also seized from the property, along with a small amount of cannabis, methadone and mobile phones.”

Both men remain in police custody as the investigation continues.

The news follows a national police operation against county lines drug gangs, which took place between Monday 14 and Sunday 20 September.

Humberside Police made arrests and seized an incredible amount of drugs and cash in their pursuit of gangs trafficking drugs into the area.

The operation was part of an intensification against such gangs, aiming to protect vulnerable young people from becoming involved in the drug trade.

A total of five warrants were executed within the region covered by Humberside Police.

20 people were arrested, almost £240,000 worth of drugs were taken off the streets and £9,500 cash recovered.

Discussing the increased effort, Detective Chief Inspector Iain Pottage said:

“The week has seen a 100% increase in intelligence being submitted to us to review and build upon.

“I can only thank the public for their support of this operation. Their information has been crucial to the activity we’ve undertaken last week and has been what has led to some of our successful arrests.”
