Three arrested after Sleaford drugs raid

They trio were released from custody, but remain under investigation.

Three people have been arrested after police officers searched a house in Sleaford.

A property was raided on Lavender Close in Sleaford on Thursday, July 19 following a warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

Three men – aged 21, 42 and 44 – were arrested on suspicion of possessing controlled drugs with intent to supply.

They have been released from custody, but remain under investigation.

This warrant is part of a drive by the local Neighbourhood Policing Inspector and his team to target drug dealers in the town, police said.

Inspector Ian Richardson, Neighbourhood Policing, Sleaford, said: “We have been working hard to gather intelligence and local knowledge so we can target those who supply controlled drugs to others and we will continue to do so.

“The arrest of these three people and the investigation is only the start of our work. We can do more with the community’s help, anyone can ring us with information or talk to one of the team. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers.

“Where we have sufficient evidence I will do everything I can to reduce the amount of drugs available in the area and make sure offenders are put before the courts.”
