Four arrested and drugs seized in North Hull warrant

HULL

7 Feb 2020

A quantity of suspected class A drugs have been seized after our Operation Galaxy and local neighbourhood teams carried out a warrant in North Hull this morning.

The team attended an address on Quarrington Grove, Hull where they found a quantity of what is believed to be class A drugs.

Four people have been arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs and handling stolen goods. All four remain in our custody whilst enquires continue.

The warrant came after local residents expressed concerns about suspected drug activity at the address through our recent Humber Talking surveys.

Hull North Community Sergeant Steve Hepworth said: “A number of people had spoken to my team about drug related crime in this area – both while we have been out and about and through our #HumberTalking initiative - so I am pleased we have been able to take this action today and show them that we are listening to their concerns.

“We know that this kind of offending can have a huge impact on the wider community and dealing with it is always a top priority for me and my team.

“When it comes to issues like drug-related crime, we need to build up the bigger picture to have the biggest impact.

“Once we’re satisfied we have all that we need to get the right result, that’s when we carry out warrants like the one we have today.

“Please keep that information coming. We are always collecting intelligence and information while we are out and about but we can’t be everywhere all the time.

“That’s where you can play a really important role, by letting us know about anything suspicious that’s happening down your street or at an address you pass when you’re on your way to the shops.

“Each bit of information can make a real difference.”
