Suspected Dealer Arrested in Selby Drugs Raid
9:39am 1st August 2013
A Selby man was arrested on Tuesday as officers continue the fight against the scourge of drugs in our community.
A warrant was executed at a property on the Water Front in Selby which resulted in the arrest of a 36-year-old Selby man on suspicion of supplying class A drugs.
Officers also seized a quantity of drugs and £500 in cash along with other items including mobile phones, a computer and plastic bags.
The man was interviewed and released on police bail to allow for further police enquiries.
Sergeant Matt Foale of Selby Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “Drugs ruin lives and we will do everything we can to bring those involved in the supply chain to justice.
"Information from the public is vital to police investigations and we will act on any information we receive about drug dealing in our community.
"I urge the community to work with us and report anyone they suspect of drug dealing in their area. And if you are one of those involved in the supply, you can expect a knock on your door in the near future.
"I also hope that local residents are reassured by our action, they can be sure that drugs will not be tolerated and the police will take positive action.”
