Officers in Kettering patrolled the town’s night time economy on Saturday (March 30) as part of an operation to disrupt those involved in the supply of drugs.
The operation involved a number of officers from the Kettering Response, Pro-Active and Neighbourhood policing teams with assistance from a specialist drugs search dog.
During the high-visibility patrols of the town centre and visits to licensed premises, a quantity of drugs was recovered. Officers also carried out nine stop searches, which resulted in a 34-year-old man from Kettering being issued with a police warning for the possession of cannabis.
Inspector Vitty Andreoli-Tear of Kettering Police, said: “By increasing our visibility and carrying out proactive visits to licensed premises in Kettering town centre, we are making it harder for those involved in the supply of drugs in the town.
“We will continue to work in partnership with the night time economy to provide a safe environment for visitors of all ages to enjoy.”
Officers also seized a Fun:Bikes MXR50 electric mini kids dirt bike after two 18-year-old men from Kettering were stopped riding the machine on the pavement in Ebenezer Place. The rider was reported for riding the bike without a licence and for no insurance.
