Cleveland Police officers from the Middlesbrough Neighbourhood Team have made four arrests and seized suspected drugs, cash and weapons after a drugs warrant was executed at a property in the east of the town.

It was carried out at an address on Penny Avenue in Netherfields on Thursday morning, as part of Operation Endeavour, a Force-wide initiative to tackle serious and organised crime. Suspected class A drugs were recovered, believed to be cocaine, along with cash and weapons including machetes and an axe which were seized.

Two women and two men were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs and were later released under investigation pending further enquiries.

If you have information regarding drugs activity in your area, contact Cleveland Police on 101, Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, or go online at crimestoppers-uk.org

 

Meanwhile the Police and Crime Commissioner Steve Turner has said thank you to the volunteers who help some of Cleveland’s most vulnerable people entering police custody.

He took the opportunity of using National Volunteers’ Week to thank the Appropriate Adult volunteers whose work is co-ordinated by charity Middlesbrough and Stockton MIND.

The 46 strong team provides round the clock support to vulnerable, local people with mental health problems, learning difficulties or substance misuse problems, who are detained in Police custody.

Between April and December 2020 the use of the service saw an increase of around a third, with 911 people supported by the service compared to 638 during the same period in 2019.

A local hospital charity is asking people to put the kettle on, reflect on a year like no other and raise money for the incredible people in our NHS who’ve done so much to help us get through the pandemic.

Our Hospitals Charity, which is the fundraising arm of South Tees Hospitals NHS Trust, wants as many people as possible in our area to get involved in the nation’s biggest tea break on Monday July the 5th at 3pm.

Each event organised can be in person or virtual, with friends, family, neighbours or colleagues and it's a way of thanking NHS staff and volunteers for everything that they have done and continue to do while raising for our local hospitals.

To show your support for our local NHS you can text NHSTEA to 70560 to donate £5 (plus one standard rate message). You can also set up an fundraising page so that anyone who can’t be there on July 5th, can donate. Head online to nhsbigtea.co.uk and follow the link or go to JustGiving and search for South Tees Hospitals Charity.
