A tip-off from the public has led to £600-worth of drugs being seized near Cromer.
Officers in North Norfolk seized a quantity of cannabis, as well as a number of mobile phones following the execution of a drugs warrant in Northrepps.
The items were seized on Thursday, September 3, when officers visited a property in Christophers Close after receiving information from the community.
Following the seizure, sergeant Matt Blake, of the North Norfolk policing team, said: “Last night’s seizure is a great example of the impact a community can have when they report suspicious behaviour to us. They are often our eyes and ears, and can help us tackle disruptive activity, and its associated crimes.”
No arrests were made at the time of the warrant but investigations continue following the discovery and seizure of the items.
