Machete and Class A drugs recovered from Grantham property

On Monday afternoon we attended a property in Cambridge Street, Grantham and found a substance believed to be cocaine.

Boys aged 15 and 16 were at the property along with a 43-year-old man. All were arrested on suspicion of being involved in the supply of a Class A drug.

The 15-year-old was found in possession of this machete.

Detective Inspector Andrew Wright-Lakin says:

“We will always act when we believe a property is being used for an illegal activity.

"We continue to remove as many weapons as we possibly can from Grantham and the wider county under Operation Raptor – our force’s ongoing drive to take them out of circulation.

"By doing so we reduce the chances of them being used to incite fear, create violence or in other crimes including those involving drugs.”

They have been released on bail and officers continue to investigate this case.

If you have information about the supply or production of drugs, please contact us on 101 or make a report to CrimeStoppers, online or by calling 0800 555 111, if you wish to remain anonymous.
