Suspected heroin and crack cocaine seized in Lancaster

John Freeman
Police have seized over £1,000 worth of suspected heroin and crack cocaine after stopping a car in Lancaster.

The car was stopped on Caton Road by officers from Lancaster’s neighbourhood police team and road policing unit last Thursday morning.

A 39-year-old man from Liverpool was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs. He has been released on bail pending further investigation. A 37–year-old man from Liverpool was also arrested but was released without charge.

“The stop-check of the vehicle led to a significant amount of drugs being prevented from making their way on to the streets of Lancaster," says PC Peppe Agliolo, community beat manager for Skerton East.

“Drugs, and the associated crime and anti-social behaviour that come with them, have a really negative effect on our communities. We are listening to the concerns of residents and taking action. If anyone has any information about drugs in their community then I would urge them to get in touch with us.”
