Drugs were discovered by police at a house in Tingley.

Officers from the Leeds Outer South Neighbourhood Policing Team, based at Morley Police Station, and a specialist drugs dog, raided a house on Old Hall Road on Sunday morning following the issue of a warrant by Leeds Magistrates Court.

A quantity of controlled drugs were recovered, together with cash and other items.

A female in her 50s and a male in his 30s were arrested and questioned before being released on police bail. Enquiries are continuing.

Ward Manager for the Tingley area, PC Chris Dibbs said: “Intelligence was gathered by PC Paul Coates and myself and drugs strongly suspected to be on the premises at that time. A warrant was obtained and executed by colleagues and substances recovered.”

PC Dibbs is keen to reinforce his and PC Coates’ new Ward Manager role. He said: “Part of our role is to develop community intelligence and seek warrants where appropriate. More will follow”.
