Arrests in Maria Street in North Ormesby

Three people have been arrested this morning after officers from Middlesbrough’s Neighbourhood Policing Team targeted four properties on Maria Street in North Ormesby.

The operation is part of an on-going effort to tackle suspected drug dealing in the area.

A large quantity of suspected cannabis was recovered from some of the properties as well as cash, potential weapons and drugs paraphernalia.

Two males aged 35 and 26 were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of controlled drugs and one woman aged 22 was arrested on suspicion of supplying drugs with intent to supply.

Yesterday, five people were arrested on Macbean Street and Edward Street as part of the operation in a bid to tackle the on-going issues in the area.

Officers would like to thank the local community for their continued support and for the members of the public who provide the neighbourhood teams with intelligence.
