POLICE hit eight Chester homes in a crackdown on drugs and theft.
From Tuesday to Friday, they executed the search warrants which resulted in offenders being charged with possession, production and supply of drugs as well as handling stolen goods.
Sergeant Anton Sullivan, of Chester Outer police, said: “Everyone has been a positive result.
“It’s part of the ongoing disruption of any drugs offences and it will continue.
“The feedback is they generally support us. The occupier of the house may be one of their relatives but if they’re elderly they don’t always understand what’s going on in their own house and they fully support us.”
One man was arrested on Tuesday and given an £80 fixed penalty for cannabis possession.
The following day, two people were arrested in Vicars Cross for being concerned in the supply of class A and class B drugs.
Later an arrest for possession of class B drugs was made of a man wanted for an assault a few weeks earlier.
On Thursday there were three warrants in Lache. One was given a warning for cannabis possession, one was arrested and charged with cultivation of cannabis and one contained suspected stolen property.
That is currently under investigation. There was also a cannabis warning issued there.
