Four Arrested In Hartcliffe Drug Raids

Three men and one woman have been arrested by officers from Avon and Somerset Police, who executed two warrants in Hartcliffe.

The four were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply when officers carried out warrants in Bishport Avenue and Murford Avenue.

Officers seized two kilogrammes of suspected amphetamine, £5,000 cash and 12 mobile phones during the operation.

Neighbourhood Manager Inspector Nigel Colston said: "This was an excellent result for the neighbourhood team, who are determined to act on the information they receive from the local community.

"I'd urge people to keep the information coming. If you know or suspect someone is dealing drugs, call us on 101, report it through our website or tell Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."

The four people arrested have been bailed pending analysis of the drugs and further enquiries.
