Three men were arrested today (5 November) following warrants executed in Lincoln as part of our ongoing campaign to tackle weapons offences.
The men – one aged in his 20s, one in his 30s and another in his 40s - were all arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A and B drugs, following the warrant carried out this morning in the north of Lincoln.
Weapons, including metal bars and a knife, were also seized.
The warrants are part of Operation Raptor, an intelligence-led campaign which involves robust action being taken against offenders, and education on the dangers of possessing and using weapons.
So far, more than 30 people have arrested and over 30 weapons seized since being launched.
Warrants were also executed at three properties in Lincoln, yesterday.
Three people who were arrested – a man in his 20s, a woman in her 20s and another woman in her 50s – have been released under investigation.
Among the weapons seized in yesterday’s warrants were knives, a replica BB gun, a hammer and a baseball bat.
As part of Operation Raptor, a weapons surrender was launched on Monday. Members of the public can hand in weapons at any of the four main police stations in the county.
