Humberside Police have revealed that 51 people were arrested in first week of Op Galaxy intensification.
In a bid to continue to disrupt and dismantle criminality, officers are ramping up proactive work throughout the force area for a four-week period.
People were arrested across Hull, East Yorkshire and North and North East Lincolnshire on suspicion of crimes relating to organised crime, drug-related offences, violent crime, robbery, burglary and anti-social behaviour.
Following this, eight warrants have been executed with seven people arrested as a result. A quantity of cash and drugs have also been seized.
Superintendent Paul Butler, leading the operation, said: “All of our teams throughout Humberside Police continue to make our area a hostile place for criminals and we ask anyone with any information about crime in our area to get in touch.

“We are encouraging anyone with information about crime, drugs or weapons in their area to contact us on our non-emergency number 101 so we can investigate and take the appropriate action.
