Man charged with drug offences in Fleetwood

A man has been charged with drug offences following a raid in Fleetwood.

Yesterday (Thursday 7th March 2024), the Wyre Task Force and Neighbourhood Policing Team executed a warrant on Poulton Street.

Upon entering, officers seized a quantity of drugs located in various locations of the property and arrested a male.

James Henderson, 28, of Aughton Street, Fleetwood, has since been charged with three counts of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs and has been bailed by the courts to appear again on 5th April.

Inspector Martin Wyatt, of Fleetwood Police, said: “This result is another example of our relentless action against serious and organised crime in Fleetwood.

“We will continue with our proactive and robust stance to ensure we put offenders before the courts.

“Anyone with information is encouraged to contact police on 101, online via our website, or contacting Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Always call 999 in emergencies.”

Operation Warrior is Lancashire Police’s response to tackling serious and organised crime in Lancashire and delivering on Police and Crime Commissioner Andrew Snowden's Fighting Crime Plan priority of disrupting and dismantling organised crime.

It aims to target the individuals and gangs involved in crime, as well as associated issues such as violence and intimidation, large scale drug supply, exploitation, and fraud, all of which can cause serious harm to local communities.
