A man in his 20s jumped from a window of a house in Kettering today (Wednesday, July 10) as police executed warrants under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

The man was detained by officers for questioning, but has not been taken into custody.

Police visited the house in Duke Street, where they found no drugs but uncovered a large amount of cash.

A police spokesman confirmed this was seized on suspicion of it being proceeds of crime.

An earlier warrant executed at a house in Rockingham Road found the property to be empty.
