Large amount of cash and suspected drugs seized in York
North Yorkshire Police has seized £5000 in cash and a quantity of suspected drugs following the execution of two warrants in Acomb.
The local Neighbourhood Policing Team acted on information provided by members of the public and conducted two warrants early yesterday morning (Thursday 13 April 2023) at separate addresses on Chesney Fields.
At the first address, officers seized three large bags of what is believed to be a Class-B drug as well as a large quantity of what is believed to be a Class-A drug and £5000 in cash.
A 24-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a Class-B drug, possession of a Class-A drug and money laundering.
He was interviewed and later released under investigation.
