“Not On Our Coast”
That’s Humberside Police’s message to people looking to come into Bridlington to deal Class A drugs.
Last week alone they arrested six people and seized quantities of heroin, cocaine and cash from people linked to drug-related crime in the resort.
Drugs and drug-related crime can have a huge impact on communities and it’s not something that we will tolerate here in Bridlington.
Over the last week we have arrested six people, carried out searches of people we believe to be involved in the supply of drugs, disrupted suspected drug deals and seized more than £1,000 in cash.
We’ve also recovered quantities of what we believe to be heroin and crack cocaine and we’ll continue to target those suspected of being involved in this kind of offending.Neighbourhood Beat Manager PC Kevin Jones
As a result of the activity:
- Jordan Spalding, 18, of Moser Avenue, Bradford, was remanded to appear before Hull Crown Court on Wednesday, 11 September, 2020. He is charged with assault, possession with intent to supply heroin, possession with intent to supply cocaine and obstructing a police officer.
- Lewis O’Donnell, 18, of Thonfield Avenue, Bradford, is bailed to appear before Hull Magistrates Court on Wednesday, 11 September, 2020, charged with possession of heroin and possession of cocaine.
- Adrian Walsh, 22, of Tennyson Avenue, Bridlington, is bailed to appear before Hull Magistrates Court on Monday, 9 September, charged with driving without a licence.
- An 18-year-old Bridlington man was charged with breaching his bail but the offence was withdrawn at court.
- A 32-year-old Bridlington woman was arrested on suspicion of supplying a controlled drug and a 17-year-old London boy was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs. Both have been released under investigation, pending further enquiries.
By working together, we can make a real impact on offending of this kind, so my plea to everyone living and working in Bridlington is to keep the information coming.
If you have concerns about crime in your area, speak to your local officers or give us a call on our non-emergency 101 line.
The more we know about where and when these people are operating, the more effective we can be in putting a stop to it.Neighbourhood Beat Manager PC Kevin Jones
