Seven people have been arrested and drugs totalling over £2,000 recovered after police in Great Yarmouth carried out two days of warrants to tackle class A and class B drug supply in the Borough.

Officers carried out warrants at addresses in Trafalgar Square, Coronation Terrace, North Quay, St Peters Road, Bells Marsh Road in Gorleston, Southtown Road, Elder Green, Mill Road in Cobholm and Kent Road in Lowestoft as part of an operation to disrupt the activities of those suspected of involvement in drug dealing.

In addition to the seven arrests police also issued one fixed penalty notice for possession of cannabis.

The arrests included:

A 28-year-old man was arrested at Bells Marsh Road on suspicion of possession of cannabis with intent to supply. He was taken into custody, interviewed by officers and has now been bailed to return to Great Yarmouth Police Station on November 4. Police recovered items from the address including a carrier bag containing cannabis, scales and a quantity of cash.
A 49-year-old man was arrested at Coronation Terrace on suspicion of possession of a class A drug with intent to supply. He has now been interviewed and bailed to return to Great Yarmouth police station on November 4.
A 39-year-old man from Great Yarmouth was arrested at Trafalgar Square. Everton DeSilva, of Trafalgar Square, has now been charged with possession of heroin and is due to appear at Great Yarmouth Magistrates Court on October 19.
Three people arrested at Southtown Road. A 59-year-old man was detained on suspicion of cultivating cannabis and a 38-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of possession of cannabis. All three were taken into custody at Great Yarmouth police station.
A 45-year-old man was arrested at Kent Road in Lowestoft on suspicion of cultivation of cannabis. He is currently in custody at Great Yarmouth police station.
A fixed penalty notice was also issued to a 28-year-old man for possession of cannabis.

Officers have seized heroin believed to have a street value of over £400, cannabis believed to be worth in excess of £1,600, a quantity of cash and what is thought to be stolen property.

Chief Inspector Stuart Armes said he was pleased with the results.

“The two days of activity have been based on intelligence received by police which has allowed us to go and carry out these warrants to disrupt the activities of those suspected of involvement in drug supply in our community.

“This has led to a number of arrests and seizures of drugs including heroin and cannabis as well as cash that may be proceeds from dealing them.

“This is part of an ongoing operation to tackle the supply of drugs in the Great Yarmouth area in order to make our neighbourhoods safer and better places to live.

“Drug use is often linked to other so-called acquisitive crimes, such as burglaries and thefts, and it is hoped that tackling those involved in the trade will ensure that we continue to maintain low crime levels in the Borough, as well as addressing the harm that is caused by drugs.

“We will continue to carry out warrants against those suspected of involvement in the supply of class A and B drugs and would ask anyone with information about suspected dealers or properties where cannabis is being grown to call us on 0845 456 4567.”
