Two People Arrested as Part of Operation Phoenix

Two people have been arrested and a quantity of suspected heroin and cannabis has been seized after a raid was carried out at an address on Portman Street in Middlesbrough under the banner of Operation Phoenix.

A 48-year-old man and 30-year-old woman have been arrested on suspicion of possession with the intent to supply Class A and Class B drugs. This is part of Cleveland Police’s Operation Phoenix; a summer long operation to improve public service, help vulnerable people, tackle serious violence and prevent crime.


Officers also recovered some suspected stolen identification and documentation and both the man and woman have been arrested on suspicion of theft. They have been released under investigation.
