Eight men arrested after ‘linked incidents’ in Hartlepool as suspected cannabis farm revealed in town
Eight men were arrested after a series of ‘linked incidents’ in Hartlepool on Thursday night.
Eight men, aged from 21 to 38, have been arrested after a number of what police believe are linked incidents in Hartlepool last night (Thursday, May 6).
Police were first called to a report of an ongoing disturbance involving a group of men, some with weapons, on the street in York Road at around 11.20 pm.
Officers said that all was quiet when officers arrived, but another altercation on nearby Dent Street was reported.
The men were arrested and a subsequent search of a property on York Road revealed a suspected large cannabis farm.
An amount of cash and four vehicles were also seized by police.
Cleveland Police added: “Officers remain in the property and in the wider neighbourhood conducting further inquiries under a joint investigation by Hartlepool CID and Hartlepool Neighbourhood Policing Team.
“The men remain in custody awaiting questioning.”
