Two arrested in Cumbria on suspicion of £100,000 heroin possession

TWO people have been arrested in Cumbria on suspicion of possessing over £100,000 worth of heroin.

Officers from Cumbria Police’s Serious and Organised Crime Unit are questioning a 33-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman from Merseyside, after heroin with a street value of approximately £100,000 was seized.

The two are being detained at Durranhill Police Station after officers stopped the vehicle they were travelling in on the M6 motorway between junctions 42 and 43 at Carlisle.

Detective Superintendent Andrew Slattery: “Cumbria Constabulary is committed to tackling the supply of controlled drugs and these latest arrests show that Cumbria is not a soft target for drug dealers or organised criminals.”
