Three men have been arrested for drug offences after a warrant by Bedfordshire Police’s new Boson north team.

A large amount of suspected Class A and Class B drugs, as well as mobile phones and suspected drug dealing paraphenalia were recovered by the officers.

Two men in their 20s and a teenager were arrested after the raid in Coventry Road, Bedford on Thursday night.

The proactive operation was the latest action by Bedfordshire Police’s new Boson team.

The team is dedicated to tackling gun and gang activity, serious youth violence and associated criminality in and around Bedford.

Sergeant Luke Blackburn, who is heading up the team’s proactive operations, said: “This is exactly the type of activity we want our team to be doing.

“This was just the latest in a number of warrants we have carried out since the team launched in January, and further activity is planned over the coming weeks.

“We will be doing all we can to disrupt gang activity in the north of the county and this operation should serve as a warning to those involved.”

Anyone with suspicions about gun or gang crime can report them to police on 101 or via Bedfordshire Police’s online reporting centre.
