Three arrested after drugs raid in Gateshead

Three people have been arrested after police recovered drugs in a Gateshead raid.

Officers carried out a search warrant and recovered an amount of drugs. The haul is currently being tested.

Two men aged 28 and 24, and a woman aged 23 were arrested on suspicion of possessing a class A drug with intent to supply and have been bailed pending further enquiries.

"We carried out a search warrant on Wednesday morning, seized drugs and made three arrests.

"This shows we are committed to acting on the information we received from the community and I would urge people to let us know about any crime and disorder in their neighbourhood so the appropriate action can be taken.

"There is no place for drug use and supply in our community and we will continue to carry out pro-active operations such as this to tackle those suspected of being involved in such activity."
