Around £4500 worth of drugs have been seized in a warrant at an address on Baildon Court, Hedon this morning.

Officers from our East Riding proactive team attended the address shortly before 9am, once inside they found a number of large cannabis plants as well as drugs paraphernalia. 

A man was arrested at the house, he remains in our custody at this time.

Inspector Paul Bennett from the proactive team said: “This is another terrific success is our mission to tackle drugs and drug crime across the Humberside Police force area.

“This warrant came about after information was reported to us by members of the public and I’d just like to say thank you to anyone that calls in with information about crime in their area.

“Without the help of those that live and work in a community we wouldn’t be able to carry out as many warrants as we do, taking action against those that commit drug crime.”

If you have any information about crime or ASB in your area please call our non-emergency 101 number or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
