A teenage boy is on bail after being arrested in South Lynn on suspicion of drugs crimes.

The arrest was one of 12 made during what police today described as a National Intensification Week targeting so-called County Lines offending.

The youth was detained on suspicion of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply at an address in Beloe Crescent on Monday, October 11.

He remains under investigation while inquiries continue.

Eleven other people were arrested across the county during the week of action, which ended last Sunday.

One of them has since been charged and is due to appear before Norwich Crown Court next month.

Detective Chief Inspector Sonia Humphries, of Norfolk Police, said: “Our action last week demonstrates the strength of partnership work in tackling this issue.

“Together, with the support of the public and our partners, we are able to confront head on the supply of drugs and the exploitative actions that surround this type of crime.

“Whilst our enforcement against those who supply drugs and exploit our most vulnerable will be unrelenting, the partnership approach to safeguarding and identifying areas for preventative work is critical in reducing the demand in this county, and this intensification week has been a step forward in that joined up approach.”
