Friday, January 5, 2024

Pendle neighbourhood police officers and the Pendle Task Force executed a targeted operation on Wednesday, conducting two drugs warrants at addresses in Colne.

During the operation, the two addresses were searched and a quantity of drugs and paraphernalia were found at each of the homes.

Three people were arrested, a 38-year-old man from Colne, a 38-year-old woman from Colne and a 58-year-old man from Colne, all for possession with intent to supply Class A. All have been released on bail as investigations continue.

Inspector James Cooper from Pendle Police said, “Drugs can have a serious impact on our communities and the work carried out yesterday sends a clear message that we will not tolerate drugs in our county.

“I would ask that residents continue to report their issues and concerns to us so we can take action and tackle these problems.”
