Police seize drug paraphernalia and knuckleduster in Ely raid
A knuckleduster and drug paraphernalia were seized after police raided an Ely house today.
East Cambridgeshire's police used a battering ram to force open a door to a property in High Barns earlier today following reports of drug activity.
No drugs were found inside the house, but officers seized drug paraphernalia and a knuckleduster.
Sgt Mark Rabel said: "We’re committed to tackling drug related issues and we welcome any information you may have about drug use or dealing.
"Drugs and drug related crime can have a negative impact on our communities and its use can harm the health and safety of our residents."
Sgt Rabel encouraged residents to report suspicious behaviour to the police, and said that common signs of drug dealing included:
- Lots of different people coming and going from an address.
- People coming and going at odd times of the day and night.
- Strange smells coming from the property.
- Windows covered or curtains closed all the time.
- Cars puling up to or near the house for a short period of time.
"If you have noticed any of this type of activity and suspect drug dealing at a house or in your area, please report to us online or call us on 101," said Sgt Rabel.
"You don’t have to tell us your name, just what you have seen. Your information could be vital."
