Chief Insp Damien Miller said: “We are determined to tackle drugs and the crime that is associated with its supply and possession.

“Targeting drug dealing on the streets for instance is one of the local priorities which have been set by the Bowling, Barkerend and Bradford Moor Neighbourhood Policing Team after consultation with community.

“This is complimented by the many proactive operations which have taken place in recent months focusing specifically on these issues.

“Last month for instance, Operation Smartwood saw over 15 arrests and over £30,000 in drugs seized. Similarly, Operation Sabredale in July saw £438,000 worth of Class A and Class B drugs recovered.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the non emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
