Officers from Stockton Neighbourhood Police Team, supported by NERSOU (The North East Regional Special Operations Unit) disruption team, executed a drugs warrant at an address in Londonderry Road, Stockton, yesterday.

A small amount of drugs and a number of dangerous weapons were recovered.

The people inside the premises were removed and the property secured.

The Northern Echo:

A police spokesperson said: "We will now be working with the landlord and the council to address the antisocial behaviour caused by the occupants of this address."

The warrant was executed as part of Operation Sentinel which sees police units working together to disrupt and prevent organised crime.

Cleveland Police asked the community to continue to contact them on 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800-555111 in relation to drug dealing.

"Although we cannot respond to every call it is invaluable in obtaining warrants, closure orders and directing our patrols," the force said.
