5 Bradford men arrested in "county lines" drugs bust

Police searched 6 properties on Tuesday morning.

70 police officers from both West and North Yorkshire took part in an operation which saw 6 Bradford properties raided on Tuesday morning (11/2), with 5 men arrested.

The men, who are all from Bradford, are aged between 20 and 37 and remain in police custody.

Police say this was a joint operation between North and West Yorkshire Police targeting so-called "county lines" drug activity taking place between Bradford and Harrogate, in North Yorkshire.

They claim to have found what they suspect to be class A drugs including cocaine and heroin, as well as £3000 in cash and a machete upon searching the addresses.
