Officers cracking down on drug crime in Lancashire have made four more arrests.

This week, police targeting the supply of illegal drugs in Chorley and South Ribble disrupted suspected organised criminal activity by arresting four more people.

Two men were arrested in Leyland on Monday after officers stopped a car and recovered suspected crack cocaine and cannabis and a large amount of cash.

And on Wednesday, task force officers acting on intelligence stopped a vehicle in Chorley and found suspected heroin and crack cocaine.

A spokesperson for the police said: "Following consultation with the crown prosecution service, Sean Grindle, 21, of Waterloo Close, Liverpool, and Sam Higgins, 22, of no fixed address, were charged with possession with intent to supply a Class A drug and possession of criminal property.

"Grindle was also charged with dangerous driving, driving while disqualified, failure to stop, driving without a license and insurance.

"They have both since appeared before Preston magistrates.

"Gary Byrne and Rebecca Harrison-Abbott, both 30 and of Brighton Street, Chorley, have each been charged with possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.

"Byrne has also been charged with driving while disqualified and driving without insurance.

"They were due to appear at Preston Magistrates Court on Friday morning."

Earlier this month Chorley and South Ribble policing teams executed six warrants at addresses across Chorley and Leyland and arrested 10 people as part of those investigations on suspicion of drug-related offences.

They have since all been released under investigation.

As a result of that work a significant amount of class A drugs, including suspected cocaine and heroin were seized, as well as more than £8,000 in cash.

Supt Karen Edwards, Operations Manager for South Division, said: “The communities in Leyland and Chorley will not tolerate criminality in their area.

"This is a fantastic example of proactive policing which has resulted in a number of arrests.

"My officers will continue to act on community information and other intelligence, and will utilise all tactics available to make Leyland and South Ribble a safer place.”

Lancashire Constabulary will continue to target the supply of classified drugs into the area.
