Main article content
Four people have been arrested during warrants as part of a day of action across Northwich LPU.
On Thursday 30 November, approximately 40 officers from the Local Policing Unit (LPU) - including Specials, the Impact team and the Collision Investigation Team - conducted a number of warrants under Operation Narrating.
Officers raided four addresses in Northwich – including Wade Crescent, Alamein Road, Oakwood Lane, and Artisan Way.
As well as the raids in Northwich, officers conducted a section 18 search of an address on Brimstone Road in Winsford.
Approximately £10,000 in cash was seized as part of the day of action, as well as cannabis, THC edible gummies, nitrous oxide cannisters, pepper spray, and small amounts of white powder.
Four people were arrested. These include:
A 28-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply drugs.
A 37-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of drugs.
A 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of cannabis.
A 41-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of harassment.
All are currently in custody assisting police with their enquiries.
A further three people were issued with Community Resolution Orders.
Chief Inspector Leeroy Moss said:
“The warrants today are a great result for Northwich LPU, sending a message to residents that organised crime will not be tolerated.
“These warrants come off the back of information from the community, demonstrating that we act upon the information we receive.
“In addition to the arrests and warrants, we were also able to seize a number of items, including £10,000 in cash.
“I want to reassure the public we are doing all we can to crackdown on those who bring misery to our communities, helping to ensure Northwich and Winsford remain a hostile environment for those intent on committing crime.
“I would like to also appeal to the community that if anyone has any information about illegal drug activity or any other criminal activity taking place then they should report it to us on 101, or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 and we will do the rest.”
