  7. Police seize 10kg of 'spice' and thousands of pills in raid

    More than 10kg of the spice drug and thousands of pills have been seized during a raid at a house in Hull.

    Coleridge Street

    Humberside Police said the drugs were found in sports holdalls at a property on Coleridge Street, along with Diazepam, Valium and Viagra, and a huge amount of amphetamines.

    Officers say they also found stolen goods, which they think are linked to a number of burglaries and thefts in the city.

    The discovery has also led to a second raid at a different property in another part of the city where more than £1,000 worth of a class A drug, thought to be cocaine, was seized.

    Two men and a woman have been arrested on suspicion of possessing illegal drugs with intent to supply.

    Quote Message: The sheer amount we’ve seized will take some time to process. We are confident we have disrupted the supply of a large amount of controlled drugs that could have seen their way onto our streets and further afield." from Insp Paul Bennett Humberside Police
