Drugs and pepper spray were seized when police raided three homes in Norwich.

Officers from the Norwich North safer neighbourhood team executed a drugs warrant at a home in Saffron Square, in Catton Grove, at 9.30am on Tuesday (June 2) morning.

Norfolk police said a quantity of cannabis was found inside. Two people were interviewed at the scene by officers and enquiries are ongoing.

As a result of information obtained during that raid, officers searched a second property in Vale Green, Mile Cross, where a quantity of crack cocaine, worth about £1,300 was discovered.

A woman was arrested at the scene on suspicion of possession with intent to supply and taken to Aylsham Police Investigation Centre for questioning.

Officers searched the woman’s home address in Waterman Road, near Guardian Road, where a pepper spray was seized.

Police had initially tweeted that a firearm had been seized. However, that was not a gun, but the pepper spray, which comes under firearms legislation.

Jane Mason, 51, of Waterman Road, Norwich, was later charged with possession with intent to supply a Class A drug (crack cocaine) and possession of a noxious liquid, namely pepper spray.

She was remanded in custody to appear before Norwich Magistrates Court on Wednesday, June 3.
