Written by Hitmix Local News on 8 February 2021
28 people have been arrested and 14 safeguarded by police in Staffordshire following a week targeting County Lines drug activity.
Around 3,000 cannabis plants, and nearly 5,000 pounds worth of crack cocaine and heroin were confiscated. Officers also seized 3,000 in cash and weapons including a machete, knife and flick knife.
Detectives say they’ll continue to arrest and charge those dealing drugs but look to safeguard the young and vulnerable who may be pressured into this type of activity.
