Police have raided a Norwich flat for the third time in three months - this time seizing suspected stolen bikes.

Less than three weeks ago police seized multiple mobile phones and a “small amount” of crack cocaine from the same property in Watson Grove.

And in October officers arrested five people and found 400 wraps of suspected Class A drugs during another raid at the flat.

Norfolk police executed the latest warrant shortly before 9am on Tuesday (December 18). They seized a small quantity of cocaine and seven bicycles believed to be stolen.

Police said no one has been arrested and enquiries are on-going.

It comes as people living in the Watson Grove area spoke to this newspaper in October about the criminal behaviour plaguing their community.

Those living on Armes Street and Goodman Square claimed the area had become a hot spot for heroin and crack cocaine dealing.

But they have since praised police for taking action.
