Over 450 arrests and 100 warrants as Op Galaxy continues

A further 82 arrests this week has bumped the total of those detained to 451 in just three and a half weeks of intensified action as part of Operation Galaxy.

Days of action this week have taken place across the entire force area, with Barton in North Lincs and Hull seeing warrants executed, with an overall total since the start of the action now at 101. Upon entering these properties, we have seen cannabis factories discovered and seized large quantities of drugs and weapons.

Further arrests have also been made for offences such as possession of an offensive weapon, possession of indecent images of children, fraud, aggravated burglary, robbery and breach of a restraining order.

Some of the results include:

The offences are alleged to have taken place at different shops across the Hull area between 8 June and 18 June. He remains in our custody as the investigations continue.
