Drug Raids Result in Arrests

  • Posted

Over recent years, drug laws within the UK have become stricter; and earlier this week police within South Yorkshire suggested that they had succeeded in making a “significant dent” in the drug dealing fraternity; after conducting a series of pre-planned dawn raids.

According to reports, South Yorkshire police conducted a number of pre-planned raids on homes of alleged drug dealers within the Eastwood area; arresting seven people on suspicion of being involved in the supply of Class A drugs.

The raids followed a six-month covert investigation, following concerns raised by local councillors and residents within the area.

Those found guilty of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs, the maximum jail sentence which could be imposed is life imprisonment; although it is rare that sentences exceed ten years.

For those facing any drug-related charges, it is important to seek legal advice at the earliest opportunity; which is where our team of criminal law solicitors in Yorkshire are able to assist.

If following charges of drug-related offences you opt to plead guilty; our solicitors will use there experience and expertise to mitigate for the lowest possible sentence in the circumstances.
