Police made six arrests and found “significant” quantities of cannabis after a series of raids were carried out in Crick on Friday night.

There were five drug warrants carried out at numerous houses in the village starting at 8pm.

This was followed by a raid on a home in Clifton later the same evening.

The raids led to cannabis, pills, drugs equipment, cash, mobile phones and a car being seized.

All of the arrests have been made on suspicion of possession with intent to supply.

A 16-year-old girl, an 18-year-old man, and two 22-year-old men have been released on police bail while a 36-year-old woman received a caution.

Another man was arrested at the same time in connection with other offences.

A street value for the amount of cannabis found in the raids has not yet been made public but the force has described the amount as significant.

Inspector Helen Pritchett, head of the Daventry Safer Community Teams, said: “There have been a lot of concerns raised by members of the local community and we want to be seen acting upon these concerns.

“The officers were out on the scene for around three-and-a-half to four hours carrying out the raids but we then had the process of interviewing people so it took around 18 and 19 hours.

“We are delighted by how the evening went because it was a good example of CID, uniform officers and all parts of the force working together.”

She also had a warning for other people who grow and sell quantities of the class b drug.

Insp Pritchett added: “These latest raids should act as a warning to others in the same situation. There is no hiding place to run and we will come and find you.”

Anyone with concerns about drugs can call 101.
