Two bailed after first ‘legal highs’ raid in Lincoln

Two people who were arrested on suspicion of supplying ‘legal highs’ in the first drug raid of its kind in Lincoln have been released on bail.

As previously reported, a 36-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of supplying New Psychoactive Substances (known commonly as legal highs) on Monday, June 27.

Those arrested have been released on police bail for forensics and statements, on the grounds that they return on Friday, August 26.

The raid, which is the first of its kind in Lincoln took place on Archer street, in which a large quantity of ‘legal highs’ were confiscated at the property.

A ban on the production, supply and importation of legal highs was rolled out across England and Wales on May 26, referring to “any substance intended for human consumption that is capable of producing a psychoactive effect.”
