Ecstasy, cash, a firearm and suspected drugs equipment found in Pocklington

East Riding of Yorkshire

12 Jul 2019

A bag full of suspected ecstasy tablets, an air rifle, ammunition, other suspected drugs, cash and drugs paraphernalia have been found at an address during a warrant executed in Pocklington.

Our officers carried out the warrant earlier this week under the Misuse of Drugs Act at the property on The Oval on Wednesday 10 July. 

A bag of what’s thought to be over 40 ecstasy tablets, £560 in cash, electronic scales, mobile phones, grip seal bags as well as the weapon and ammo were seized. 

A large bag of white powder thought to be cocaine was also found. That’s been tested to find out what it is. 

An 18-year-old teenager has been arrested on suspicion of possessing a controlled drug with intent to supply and possession of a firearm. He’s been released under investigation. 

Inspector Paul Bennett said: “We’re now looking to see if there are any connections to the supply of these drugs outside of our force area. 

“When we make a seizure like this we have to wonder where they were destined for, as well as where they came from. 

“My concern is that some of these types of drugs, which are seen as ‘recreational’ substances, might be considered as lower level and relatively harmless. They’re not. They can kill just as easily as harder drugs such as cocaine and heroin.”
