Four arrested in day of action against County Lines drug dealing



Following five warrants and two property searches by our Op Galaxy and proactive team across Hull, a total of four men have been arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.

A 23-year-old man was arrested at a property on Belmont Street, where approximately £1,500 worth of suspected Class A drugs were recovered, as well as almost £600 in cash.

A 53-year-old man was also arrested on Wath Grove, an 18-year-old man on St Giles Court and 21-year-old man on Newland Avenue.

Detective Inspector Simon Vickers said: “County Lines drugs gangs often originate out of the area, but use the road and public transport networks and local people to supply drugs into our communities.

“Vulnerable people, often teenagers and sometimes children, are exploited into becoming involved in organised criminality, and communities can become plagued with illicit substances and anti-social behaviour that often comes from drug use and dealing.

“The impact this type of offending has on our communities is the reason we take it so seriously, and days like today help to disrupt these criminal networks and remove drugs from our streets.

“We will also work with our partner agencies to support the vulnerable people being used, as well as provide reassurance and wrap around care to our communities affected.

“Our action against drug gangs remains ongoing and we will continue to take these people, and drugs, off the streets.

“I would like to thank members of the public who have provided us with information so far and would appeal for anyone who believes they have any information that may be able to assist with our action against drugs to contact us on 101.

“Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you don’t feel comfortable speaking to police and would prefer to stay anonymous.”
