10 arrested on suspicion of supplying class A drugs during raids across Northumberland


Bot

Ten people have been arrested after drug raids across Northumberland.

Police raided eight homes in Ashington, Bedlington and Widdrington in Northumberland and arrested eight men and two women on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.

Detective chief inspector Jon Bensley, of Northumbria Police, said Thursday morning’s operation was part of a strategy to tackle a range of offences — including violent crime — which could be linked to the use and supply of Class A drugs.

He said: “The warrants we have carried out today are prime examples of the robust response we will take to proactively target those believed to be involved in criminal behaviour.

“A large part of our operation is responding to reports and intelligence that comes to us from the community.

“There is no doubt of the harmful impact drugs and drug dealing has on these communities and we are absolutely committed to pursuing those who think they can get away with it.
