Operation Farrell: Three arrested in Nuneaton drugs raid

Three people have been arrested following a drugs raid.

Police raided an address in Lexington Court, Abbey Street, Nuneaton, on Friday (21 September).

A 25-year-old woman and 33-year-old man from Nuneaton were arrested on suspicion of possession of class A drugs.

The man was released under investigation and the woman was released without charge.

An 18-year-old boy who fled the scene was arrested nearby on suspicion of possession of class B drugs and later cautioned for the offence.

Crack cocaine, heroin, mobile phones and two machetes were seized from the address.

PC Andy Morrissey said: "This raid was part of operation Farrell, an ongoing initiative to tackle the supply of drugs into Nuneaton.

"I'd like to reassure the community we are doing everything we can to disrupt this type of activity and to keep our communities safe.

"We need the support of our local community to tackle this type of crime - if we know about it we can act.

"If you witness drug dealing or are concerned about drug related activity in your area, please call 101. Alternatively, information can be provided anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."

Protect is a campaign being run by Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police alongside a range of partner agencies to tackle serious and organised crime (SOC).

The broad-ranging operation covers four key areas of activity:

  • Pursue - prosecuting and disrupting those involved in SOC
  • Prevent - stopping individuals from becoming involved in SOC
  • Protect - increased levels of protection against SOC
  • Prepare - reducing the impact of SOC where it occurs
