Two arrested during Lancaster drugs raid

Two people were arrested and suspected drugs were seized during a raid on a Lancaster property yesterday.

Officers executed a drugs warrant at an address on Whitbarrow Square at around 9.00am on Wednesday morning. Inside the address they found a quantity of white powder, believed to be heroin.

A 33-year-old woman and a 41-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of drugs offences and have been released on bail pending further inquiries.

Detective Sergeant Colin Forsyth, Lancaster CID, said: “We have recovered a quantity of powder which we believe to be controlled drugs.

“The use and supply of drugs has a significant impact on the quality of life of our local communities. We would ask that anyone who has any information about people supplying drugs should contact their local police or Crimestoppers.”
