Four people have been arrested in King’s Lynn following a drugs raid at Hillington Square this morning (Thursday).

Police searched a flat just after 8am as part of a county-wide day of action, code named Operation Octane.

Dozens of search warrants have already been executed in Norwich, Great Yarmouth, Thetford and Watton so far today and more than 90 officers are involved.

Suspected heroin, a quantity of cash and drugs paraphernalia were seized during the Lynn raid.

Three men and a woman have been arrested on suspicion of being involved in the supply of class A drugs and are currently awaiting questioning.

Officers also stopped drivers on the Hardwick roundabout during rush hour this morning to detect ‘morning after’ drink-drivers.

In an earlier raid at Walpole Cross Keys yesterday (Wednesday), four cannabis plants were seized.

A woman was arrested and later cautioned, it has emerged.

All the road-side breath tests were negative.
