Police find drug stash
May 13 2009 by Sam Casey, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
THOUSANDS of pounds worth of cannabis, an ornamental sword and a military knife were seized in a series of police swoops.
Five people were arrested on suspicion of offences including possession of firearms, arson, criminal damage, assault and aggravated vehicle taking.
Seven search warrants were executed on Monday at addresses in Dalton, Crosland Moor and Quarmby.
Officers seized £10,000 worth of cannabis bush and drug-related paraphernalia from an address on Walpole Road in Crosland Moor.
They picked up an ornamental-style sword, a military-style knife and imitation bullets at the same house.
A search of a second address on Quarmby Road in Quarmby led to the recovery of cocaine.
Det Insp Phil Benson said: “This latest operation sends a strong message to communities that such offences will not be tolerated.”
All those arrested have been bailed.
