Suffolk Police have carried out a day of action to combat crime and drugs offending.

Five warrents were carried out in the west of the county yesterday and Badsey Wolf, pictured, was out on patrol in Mildenhall, Newmarket and Lakenheath checking for insecure vehicles and properties.

A total of 24 were discovered including a front door that had been left open.

Owners were alerted by police and secured their property.

Among the warrents carried out was a 26-year-old man from Brandon arrested on suspicioun of cultivating cannabis. He was released on bail until Monday March 24.

A 67-year-old man from Brandon was cautioned for possession of heroin and methadone and a 45-year-old woman faces no further action after being arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs. Police also cautioned a 21-year-old man from Midlenhall for possession of cannabis.

Some 40 officers, including officers and dogs from the Police Dog Unit carried out the operation which resulted in 10 warrents being executed throughout Suffolk as part of Operation Drawbridge.

Detective Chief Inspector Bernie Morgan, who oversees operations for the County Policing Command, said: “Operation Drawbridge continues to proactively target those individuals who are responsible for burglary and associated crime. Whilst the number of house burglaries committed in Suffolk continues to fall balanced against previous years we are determined to continue to use innovative tactics to prevent further offences taking place.

“Wednesday’s activities concentrated on prevention, reduction and enforcement which have yielded some positive results.”
