Whirlpool: New Advice To Customers After New Intervention From Peterborough Trading Standards
Peterborough: 26 Drug Dealers Jailed
26 dealers who traveled to Peterborough to sell drugs have been jailed for a total of more than 70 years.
Most of them were arrested on one day back in June as part of a big police push against drug-dealing in Peterborough, called Operation Riptide.
The operation was focused on catching people who traveled to Peterborough from places including London to sell drugs and commit violent crime.
Other suspects were brought in from Peterborough Prison or arrested in the street.
Around 80 officers have been involved in the operation, which has been running since November last year.
Police have told Heart that many of the arrests were a direct result of information passed to officers by people living in Peterborough.
Detective Chief Inspector Jon Hutchinson said: "The results over the past two days reinforce the message we have given since the start of Op Riptide: if you deal drugs in Peterborough you will be arrested, put before the courts and given a significant jail term.
Drugs will not be tolerated in Peterborough and we, and our partner agencies, will keep doing everything in our power to prevent them being sold on the city's streets.
We would also ask members of the public to continue reporting suspicious activity in their neighbourhood. The information we receive from residents is crucial and we don’t mind if the activity turns out to be lawful."
