Posted on 5th February 2018

Four people have been arrested for drug offences following a raid at a property in Grangewood, Chesterfield.

Officers from the local Safer Neighbourhood policing teams and Operational Support Team carried out the warrant on Birchwood Crescent on Thursday, February 1.

They seized a quantity of suspected synthetic cannabinoids, often referred to as mamba, along with cash and drug related items.

A 26 year old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply drugs, and two men aged 51 and 21, and a 50 year old woman, were arrested on suspicion of possession of Class B drugs.

All four people, who are from the Chesterfield area, have been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

Safer Neighbourhood Team Sergeant Darran Clarke said: “We are continuing to work hard across the Chesterfield area to target drug misuse, anti-social behaviour and crime.

“Whenever we receive information about possible illegal drug activity we will always look to develop that information and investigate further if appropriate. I would like to thank the local community for their continued support and would encourage anyone with information about drug misuse to contact us.”
