Police seize dagger and axe in drugs warrant execution
Dagger and axe seized in warrant
1 May 2019
An axe, dagger and drugs paraphernalia were seized by officers who carried out a warrant at a property in Churchill Way, Grimsby, this morning (Wednesday, May 1).
Our teams forced entry to the flat shortly after 10am today, acting on information that the address was linked to drug dealing.
Sergeant Dan Healey from the East Marsh Neighbourhood Policing team said: “We know that when an address is being used to deal or use drugs it can have a significant impact on the wider community and that’s not something we will tolerate in our area.
“We’re committed to tackling this, acting on information we get from the public and prosecuting those who are involved in the trade.
“This morning, although the property now appears to have been abandoned, we found evidence of drug paraphernalia and seized a dagger and an axe.
“We’ve also arranged for the premises to be secured and made safe by Lincolnshire Housing Partnership.
“I’d lack to thank everyone who has been in touch with information about drug related crime for their continued help and support in letting us know when something is not right in their area.
“Please don’t underestimate how important your information is. If you see lots of people coming and going from a house or lots of new faces, then please get in touch.
“We know it can be frustrating if you call us and it seems like we’re not acting on it but often what’s happening is that it’s being used to build up a bigger picture to help us target offenders more effectively.”
If you have information about drug related crime in your area, please call us on our non-emergency 101 line or on Crimestoppers 0800 555 111, if you’d rather not give your name.
