Thirty seven drugs raids in Warrington in past three months

Warrington Guardian: Thirty seven drugs raids in Warrington in past three months Thirty seven drugs raids in Warrington in past three months

THIRTY-SEVEN search warrants were executed as part of a police operation to tackle drug-related anti-social problems in the town.

Operation Impact is a targeted police campaign aimed at the supply of drugs in the area.

More than 60 people were dealt in the past three months as problem addresses were raided as part of the operation.

Drugs and cash were also seized and a large number of people have since been charged with drug offences.

The aim of the operation was to act on information provided by communities in an attempt to tackle anti-social behaviour linked to illegal drug use and supply.

Detective sergeant Ian Allen, of the northern area dedicated drug unit said: "This operation has been a huge success on all fronts.

“We have listened to local residents and acted on reports of anti-social behaviour linked to drugs. We have targeted addresses, individuals and areas linked to drug dealing and drug use.”

"A large number of people have since been charged with drug offences." - How many? Last time that Cheshire Police carried out a similar number of raids, only 13% were actually charged and 4% found guilty.

Your quoted figures do sound negative but if it's saved a few kids lives by not having these scumbag dealers pressurising them then it's worth it.
