North Yorkshire Police: local arrests of suspected drug dealers

Off-road pursuit ends in arrests of suspected drug dealers

Yesterday, as part of a pre-planned drugs operation at Cawood near Selby, a suspect vehicle failed to stop for our officers and then made off across nearby fields.
Acting quickly, we pursued the vehicle off-road and soon brought it to a stop. The driver and passenger then abandoned their vehicle and tried to run away on foot but were swiftly caught.
The two occupants of the car, a 50 year-old Doncaster man and a 50 year-old Cawood man were both arrested on suspicion of money laundering and conspiracy to supply class A drugs.
Following the arrests, our officers undertook a search of a nearby farm where a 49 year-old Cawood woman was also arrested on suspicion of money
laundering and conspiracy to supply class A drugs.
Our extensive searches recovered large quantities of class A drugs which have been seized and the investigation is ongoing.
The two men and woman remain in police custody.
