Arrests made and drugs seized following Daventry warrants

Four men have been arrested on suspicion of drugs and exploitation offences following nine warrants conducted in and across the Daventry area yesterday.

Officers from across Northamptonshire Police conducted warrants at four residential properties and five which targeted vehicles on Thursday, June 16.

A significant amount of Class A drugs, cash and a vehicle were seized as part of the operation.

Sergeant Jonathan Davis-Lyons said: “The warrants have been conducted primarily to target the drug supply across the area where juveniles are being used to conduct street dealing in the town centre.

“This has been an intel led operation where we’ve had a vast amount of community led intelligence that has indicated there are drugs being supplied across the Daventry area.”

Thursday’s operation involved officers from the Daventry, South and Northampton Neighbourhood Policing Teams as well as intervention and operations team.

Two men aged 26 and 27, were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs and arrange or facilitate another person with a view to exploitation.

A 23-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A and Class B drugs and arranging or facilitating another person with a view to exploitation.

A 40-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A and Class B drugs.

Sgt Davis-Lyons added: “We’ve been able to send a message not only to the community but to these individuals that if you commit crime, if you sell drugs or you target youths in Daventry to sell drugs on your behalf, we will come through your door one day and we’ll arrest you.”

The four men have been released on police bail.

Tackling serious and organised crime and drug harm are two of Northamptonshire Police’s Matters Of Priority which were launched in May.
