Officers searched a vehicle on Barkston Grove and arrested a 25-year-old man from York on suspicion of supplying a class B drug.

Subsequent searches at a property in Westfield Place led to the arrest of two men aged 23 and 24 year old man for drugs offences.

And a 36-year-old man from York was arrested on suspicion of the theft of a cycle on Tadcaster Road. The cycle has since been returned to its owner.

‘Eradicating drug dealing’

The day of action was supported by York Neighbourhood support team, Road Policing team, Firearms support unit, York Anti-social Behaviour Hub officers and York City Council Neighbourhood Enforcement officers.

PC Andy Chapman said:

North Yorkshire Police is committed to eradicating drug dealing in the city of York.

The actions of those who choose to sell drugs will not be tolerated and my message to them is – you will be caught.

The local policing team will continue to undertake days of action as part of our aim to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour across the city.

As well as the enforcement activity, officers supported Hate Crime awareness week by attending Acomb library with information and advice.

And officers attended York College for a dot peen property making event where various items of property were marked and recorded including 45 Cycles.
