Op Shark - Update

Operation SHARK continues to gain momentum.

Since Friday morning we have:

  • Made 13 arrests for drugs related offences, including 3 for possession with intent to supply.
  • Seized cannabis and cocaine worth approximately £6000 and £1000 respectively.
  • Executed 6 drugs warrants and generated over 20 drugs related intelligence reports.

Chief Inspector Mark Hafey, Operation Shark Lead, said: “Whilst we continue to work hard to identify those involved in drug crime, we know that drugs are part of society, but we need to make sure that people are also informed so that those choosing to use drugs can make educated decisions. That said, it is illegal, a drugs conviction will result in a criminal record and possibly a prison sentence. It can also seriously affect career prospects and future travel opportunities.

“I would like to again encourage the public to phone us with any information, the public are our eyes and ears and we all have a responsibility to deter drug crime from our community. I would also like to thank partner agencies for their continued support which is invaluable.”
