Operation Zloty Arrests Bideford

Posted: 31/01/2007 10:57:02

A major two-day operation targeting local criminal behaviour and the trafficking of controlled drugs in Bideford has led to a number of arrests.

Operation Zloty took place on Thursday, 25 January and Friday, 26 January and utilised the skills and equipment of a number of force resources together with local officers.

Around 20 officers were involved in the initiative, including those from the Tactical Aid Group and the Automatic Number Plate Recognition Team.

At around 0730 hours on Thursday, 25 January 2007, officers attended an address in Stucley Road, Bideford, from where a quantity of drugs believed to be heroin was seized. As a result, a 57-year-old local woman was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs. She was later released on Police bail to return to Barnstaple Police Station on 28 March 2007.

At around 0930 hours on Friday, 26 January 2007, officers also attended an address in Southview Terrace, Bideford where another quantity of what is believed to be heroin was seized.

As a result, two men were arrested. A 31-year-old local man arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs - has been released on Police bail to return to Barnstaple Police Station on 1 March 2007. A 32-year-old local man has been charged with possessing a class A drug and will appear before North Devon Magistrates Court on 2 February.

During the two-day operation, 16 vehicles were seized at the roadside and impounded due to the drivers having no insurance. In addition, four people were arrested for drink/driving offences (we have no other details of these arrests) and a 32-year-old local man was arrested on suspicion of theft. He was later released without charge.
