Police seized 250 wraps of heroin and crack cocaine and £2,000 following a raid in Preston.

The incident occurred at around 9.15am yesterday (Monday) when officers attended a property on Ribbleton Lane, Preston. As they arrived at the property a man threw approximately 250 wraps of heroin and crack cocaine out of an upstairs window and then jumped out of the window himself and ran off.

Officers seized the drugs and during a search inside they found more drugs, drug paraphernalia and around £2,000 in cash.

A post from Preston police read: “We’d now very much like a catch-up with the man who fled the address without so much as a hello or an offer of a brew. Our enquiries are ongoing to locate him.

“Drugs are a blight on our communities but we hope these seizures send a message we will not stand for this type of criminality in Lancashire.”

The raid was part of Operation Warrior which aims to disrupt organised crime.
