Drugs and crossbow seized as police raid Coventry address

Coventry Editorial 21st Jun, 2024   0

POLICE in Coventry arrested a man and seized a crossbow during a raid under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

Officers from the Gangs Taskforce and County Lines team swooped at the address, also recovering £15,000 cash, a kilo of bagged cannabis and a bag of what was later confirmed as MDMA.

A 36-year-old man later arrived at the address and was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply.

He has since been bailed while enquiries continue.

Coventry Police say they are continuing their efforts to tackle serious and organised crime through Operation Target.

The operation, which sees regular proactive policing against everything from drugs to guns and modern slavery, has already yielded some excellent results with thousands of pounds of cash and drugs seized and dozens of firearms taken off the streets.

Last month, two men were arrested and £350,000 of class A drugs were seized, while earlier on in May a warrant resulted in two firearms, a zombie knife and a quantity of class A drugs recovered.
