TIP-OFFS from the public led to a drugs raid on a house in Chatteris and recovery of stolen property in Manea.

PC Chris Goodman, a Chatteris police officer, praised people coming forward with the information which led to warrants being executed for both raids.

"I would like to thank residents who have come to us," he said. "If anyone has suspicions about activity in their area, please get in touch as we will act on this where we can."

On Tuesday a drugs warrant was executed in Honey Lane, Chatteris where a substantial amount of cannabis was found.

The team involved eight police officers and was led by local Sergeant Rob Norman. Investigations are now continuing.

"This is the second successful drugs warrant concentrating on supply of cannabis in Chatteris in the past month," said PC Goodman. "The neighbourhood team are continuing to work hard to hit drug-related crime."

On Wednesday Chatteris and Manea officers executed a warrant in Station Road, Manea, under the Theft Act. A stolen power tool was found along with other items of police interest.

Anyone with information about possible drug use or cultivation, or handling of stolen goods should contact the team on 0845 456 456 4 or anonymously, on Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
