Police have arrested 39 people in four days of raids following an investigation into the supply of drugs in the north of the county.

Seven more arrests were made today (Thursday) after five further warrants were executed in Kettering and Corby.

Senior investigating officer Chief Inspector Nick Purdie said: “The majority of these arrests are linked to the supply of drugs into our communities.

“Drug supply and its use has a terrible impact on people living locally and I am confident that the policing operation of the past two weeks will make a significant different to people who just want to feel safe in their homes.

“Northamptonshire Police has made significant progress in tackling drugs and other crimes in Kettering and surrounding areas and we will continue to tackle offenders robustly.”
