Seven arrested in Fleetwood drugs raids

Alert message sent 18/09/2019 12:18:00

Information sent on behalf of Lancashire Constabulary

Dear Citizen

We want to let you know that seven men have been arrested today following a series of dawn raids in the Fleetwood area.

Our officers conducted the searches as part of Operation Bellis, a major campaign to disrupt drug-dealing activity by organised crime groups in the town. Warrants were executed under the Misuse of Drugs Act at six addresses in Fleetwood and a further address in Stalmine with a quantity of what is believed to be Class A and Class B drugs, cash, imitation firearms and a crossbow seized.

These raids are part of our on-going commitment to taking drugs off our streets. We know that the activities of drug dealers can have a dramatic effect on our communities. It can ruin lives, fuel other crime, such as burglary and robbery, and can instil fear in our neighbourhoods and we are determined to tackle that.

Residents have raised concerns about drug-dealing in Fleetwood and we have listened to those concerns and taken action against those believed to be responsible. We hope by doing this activity, not only will we disrupt and deal with those involved in the activity, we can warn and educate young people about the consequences of becoming involved.

We need you to continue to work with us to help us tackle drug crime by informing us of any suspicious activity. New technology and legislation can help us protect people to come forward who otherwise would have been too frightened to so it’s important that you know you can trust us when you have something to tell us. Any information can be passed to us via 101 or anonymously by contacting the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Kind regards

Det Ch Insp Eric Halford
Blackpool Police
