Three arrested following Scorton drugs raid

Police have seized white powder, cannabis and drugs paraphernalia following a drugs raid in Scorton over the weekend.

Neighbourhood police officers, accompanied by a support unit, swooped on an address on The Square in the normally quiet village near Garstang at around 7.00pm on Friday evening. After finding quantities of white powder inside the property, searches were also carried out at two other addresses and amphetamine and cannabis were seized.

A 22-year-old man from Scorton and a two men aged 27 and 28 from Preston were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of cocaine. They have been released on bail pending further inquiries.

“We hope that the seizure of this powder has prevented a large amount of drugs from making their way onto the streets of our local neighbourhoods," commented PC Dave Kerfoot from Wyre neighbourhood police team. "We have been carrying out reassurance patrols in the local area to inform residents about the action we have been taking to tackle drugs and drug dealing.

“Everyone has a part to play when it comes to removing illegal drugs from our communities and we would ask anyone with information to come forward and tell us.”
