Double drugs raid

POLICE raided two properties in Whitby for drugs on Tuesday, resulting in one arrest.

Officers from North Yorkshire Police’s Neighbourhood Safety Team executed two search warrants at a flat in Flowergate and at an address in the Bog Hall area of town, at the bottom of Fishburn Park.

At Bog Hall, police recovered a “substantial amount” of herbal cannabis.

Acting sergeant Neil Canning, who is based at Pickering Station, said police believed cannabis was being grown at the address in Bog Hall. At Flowergate at around 12.40pm, six officers found cannabis at the address and arrested a man for possession of the Class B drug.

A man has been released on bail pending further enquiries.
