A man and woman have been arrested on suspicion of drugs offences after a raid on a house in Hartlepool town centre.

Officers carried out a search warrant in Cameron Road where they seized £800 worth of suspected cannabis.

A 41-year-old man and a 32-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled drug with intent to supply and they have both been released under investigation.

The raid took place on the back of information from the community.

A Cleveland Police spokesperson said: “Information from members of the public is vital in removing illegal drugs from the streets of Cleveland and helping to identify those suspected of being involved in drug dealing.

"We will always act upon information received and would encourage anyone with information on drugs activity in their local area to contact us on 101.”
