Arrest and charge in Lincoln drugs crackdown

A 34-year-old man has been charged with possession of a Class A drug after he was arrested in Lincoln at the weekend.

Paul Bradley, of no fixed address, was arrested in the city on Saturday, July 21.

A 36-year-old Lincoln man was also arrested in the city on the same day on suspicion of possessing Class B drugs.

The arrests were part of an ongoing policing operation.

As previously reported, local teenager Declan Reece Massingham, 19, was arrested at St Swithin’s Square last week (July 18) and charged with multiple drugs offences.

The Police and Crime Commissioner Marc Jones and the Chief Constable Bill Skelly previously promised to tackle the problem of drug taking on Lincoln’s streets after The Lincolnite highlighted the damaging extent of the issue.
