Seven arrested on suspicion of drug offences

Seven people have been arrested after officers issued warrants in Great Yarmouth this morning, Wednesday 25 October.

Officers from Norfolk Constabulary’s Tactical Unit and the Great Yarmouth and Breckland Safer Neighbourhood Action Teams, targeted addresses in Priory Plain, York Road, Orford Close, Wellesley Road and Britannia Road and seized a quantity of Class A drugs and cash.

Four people from Great Yarmouth, one man and three women, all in their 30’s have been arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.

Three men from the London area, aged 17, 18 and 35, have also been arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.

All seven remain in police custody and will be questioned by officers later today.

Detective Sergeant Paul Morton said: "Today’s action demonstrates our commitment to tackling the supply of Class A drugs in Great Yarmouth under Operation Gravity, Norfolk Constabulary’s campaign to disrupt drug related crime in the county.

"I hope today’s arrests reassure the local community that we will continue to listen to their concerns and work with our partner agencies to identify those vulnerable members of the community who are at risk of becoming involved in this kind of crime.”
