Thursday, January 19, 2023

Yesterday, Wednesday 18th January 2023, Wyre Neighbourhood Task Force executed a warrant under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 at an address in Thornton.

During the search, property and a number of mobile phones were seized along with a quantity of suspected Class A drugs.

A 29-year-old male was arrested on suspicion of drug offences and Fraud by False Representation.

Inspector Martin Wyatt of Fleetwood Police said: “Thanks to community intelligence and proactive policing, we are seeing more drug seizures in Wyre.

“The communities of Wyre have highlighted drug dealing as their number one concern and my team are responding by making arrests and putting offenders before the courts.

“We will continue this approach through Operation Warrior so if you have any information about criminal activity in your area, we encourage you to report this to us. You are able to contact us by calling 101, or 999 in an emergency. Alternatively, you can visit our online portal here. You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

“We would also encourage you to sign up to Lancashire Talking and take our Lancashire Talking survey to shape how we police your area and sign up to In The Know, to keep updated with what is going on in your area.”

Operation Warrior is Lancashire Police’s response to tackling serious and organised crime in Lancashire and delivering on Police and Crime Commissioner Andrew Snowden's Fighting Crime Plan priority of disrupting and dismantling organised crime.

It aims to target the individuals and gangs involved in crime, as well as associated issues such as violence and intimidation, large scale drug supply, exploitation and fraud, all of which can cause serious harm to local communities.
