The Chief Inspector of Police in Grantham says yesterday’s raids in Earlesfield show that the local force is determined to tackle the supply of illegal drugs in the town.

On Wednesday, Lincolnshire Police and the East Midlands Special Operations Unit executed warrants at nine addresses in Grantham as part of an investigation into the supply of class A drugs.

Grantham Chief Inspector Chris Davison said today: “Residents of Grantham may be aware that Lincolnshire Police and the East Midlands Special Operations Unit have recently undertaken a series of arrests of Grantham men in relation to the supply of controlled drugs.

“While most of our community will no doubt be happy that drug dealers are being taken off the streets, there are a number of people who will now struggle to easily find their supply of illegal drugs. Lincolnshire Police are committed to tackling the trade in illegal drugs, and will enforce on others who ply their trade in Lincolnshire.

“Those suffering from the effects of substance misuse addiction may want to take this opportunity to seek treatment to free themselves from the cycle of addiction. Help can be obtained from their GP, or via Addaction at 71 High Street, Grantham on 01476 512950.”
