Figures published from the West Yorkshire Police have revealed that the number of cannabis offences have fallen in some part of Yorkshire; but have increased sharply in Bradford.
The latest figures have revealed that for 2012 / 2013, the number of cannabis related offences recorded in Bradford reached in excess of 880; compared to just over 740 during April 2010 and March 2011.
For Leeds, Wakefield and Kirklees, the number of cannabis related offences recorded by West Yorkshire Police had fallen during the same period; with the offences being recorded by the police included possession; possession with intent to supply; and production.
Meanwhile, additional reports have revealed that following a number of raids throughout South Yorkshire, drugs estimated to be worth £1 million and £250,000 in cash has been recovered by police – with police finding 14kg of Class A drugs during their raids.
