Police have arrested a man and a woman after carrying out drugs raids in Bridlington town centre this morning.

Acting on information from the public, teams of officers simultaneously raided properties in Haslemere Avenue and Albion Terrace.

Sgt Georgina Kirkwood said: “As a result of the warrant in Haslemere Avenue, we recovered up to 100 ‘deals’ of what we believe to be heroin and a 33-year-old man and a 31-year-old woman found at the address remain in our custody.

“A second man, who was in the property at Albion Terrace, has been released without charge after an extensive search of the address.

“We know the serious harm caused – often to the most vulnerable in our communities - by the supply and misuse of drugs and we’re committed to tackling this and prosecuting those involved in the trade.

“Please don’t underestimate the role you can play in helping us to do this.

“You know when something is not right in your area and you’re great at picking up the phone and letting us know. Please keep doing it.

“With your information, coupled with the intelligence gathered by our officers out on the streets, we are able to put together operations like the one carried out here today, to tackle and prevent drug related crime and bring dealers to justice.

“If you are concerned about people using or dealing drugs in your area, please call us on 101, send us details via our website or speak to your local officer.”
