POLICE have seized £25,000 of class A drugs, as well as air rifles, cash and suspected stolen high street clothes following a raid in Leeds.
Officers from the Holbeck Neighbourhood Policing Team were responding to information from local residents when they targeted the terraced house on Trentham Grove, Beeston, yesterday (Sept 20) evening.
Following a search of the property, they found a large bag of suspected crack cocaine.
They also uncovered a number of suspected stolen goods, including a large number of high street branded clothes with the security tags still attached.
Among the items recovered were a H&M suit, a Berghaus coat and a number of items from Marks & Spencer and House of Fraser.
Officers also recovered two air rifles, two packs of pellets, three mobile phones and cash.
A 39-year-old local man was arrested from the address on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs and handling stolen property. He remains in police custody.
Insp Paul Akerman, who leads the Holbeck Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “We focused on this address as a result of information from the local community.
“This type of activity demonstrates how we will actively investigate any report of alleged criminality within our communities and will take any necessary action.
“The recovery of such a significant amount of class A drugs, which would have been destined for the streets of Leeds and West Yorkshire, shows what can be achieved when the police and the community come together.”
