Two vehicles were seized and drivers dealt with for motoring and drugs offences in a police one-day blitz in nHaverhiil last week.

The day of action on Wednesday was aimed at tackling criminal activity including drug supply into the town and saw officers from specialist teams, including roads policing and the west Scorpion pro-active unit, teaming up with response colleagues to carry out additional patrols and to stop vehicles.

As a result one vehicles was seized because the driver had no insurance and the other because it was being driven by someone without a licence.

Officers also dealt with six people who were not wearing seatbelts, four driving with no insurance, three driving while using mobile phones, two who were driving with no MoT for their vehicle and two for driving without the correct licence.

Police also carried out five breath tests and two drugs tests, although these were negative.

Inspector Danny Cooper, who oversees policing in Haverhill, said; “This day was part of ongoing work to tackle criminal activity in the area and we will continue to carry out warrants and road checks to target those believed to be supplying drugs into the town.”
