Plymouth police have arrested four people – two men and two women – following a raid on a property in Weston Mill. Officers executed a warrant on a property in Carolina Gardens at around 8am on Monday morning as part of an inquiry into multiple alleged commercial burglaries which took place across the city between April and June. A quantity of cash was taken from a number of the venues, including cash from charity tins and fruit machines.
Police entered the house in Carolina Gardens and begun a search. However, while some of the property was recovered – including some cash – officers also found around three ounces of suspected heroin, which police said had an estimated street value of around £3,000.
As a result a 35-year-old woman and a 44-year-old man were both arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A drug, while the woman was also arrested on suspicion of burglary.
Following further inquiries linked to the Carolina Gardens property two more people – a man in his 50 and a woman – were arrested in the Devonport area. Both were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A drug, while the woman was also arrested on suspicion of burglary.
All four were taken to Charles Cross police station custody suite for interview where they remain at present.
