Op Galaxy enters its fourth week, and we’re continuing to get great results


25 Nov 2019

Operation Galaxy is entering its fourth week since we officially launched it on Monday 28 October, and our teams of officers are still proactively tackling those responsible for crime.

Over the weekend 7 arrests were made in one day in connection with violent behaviour, motoring offences, and drugs. 

In total, 12 people were arrested on the north and south banks. Three of them have been charged.

  • Jake Davison, 27, of Warley Road in Scunthorpe was arrested and charged with handling stolen goods, driving while disqualified, driving with no insurance, and failing to stop.
  • A 30-year-old woman was arrested at the same address on suspicion theft of a motor vehicle and burglary. She was released with no further action taken. 
  • A Misuse of Drugs Act (MDA) warrant was executed on Marshfield Road in Scunthorpe. Around £500 of suspected amphetamines and a small amount of cannabis was seized. A man and a woman were arrested at the property on suspicion of possessing a controlled drug with intent to supply (PWITS).

Sunday 24 November

  • Officers were out searching for six people we want to find in connection for a variety of reasons.

  • We also went to find two teenagers aged 16 and 18 in Grimsby who are wanted on suspicion of burglary offences, criminal damage, and theft. We arrested the 18-year-old in Grimsby this morning Monday 25 November. He’s been bailed to appear at a police station in December. 
  • Op Galaxy officers were also asked to support patrol officers in Hull who had been called to an incident where a woman had allegedly been assaulted. A 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of section 18 GBH and two counts of assaulting a police officer. He’s still in custody.
