Two arrested following warrant at farm in Haisthorpe

Two men have been arrested at a premises following a warrant at a premises in Haisthorpe, between Driffield and Bridlington.

Last Wednesday, officers from the police’s Rural Task Force executed a warrant at a farm alongside the neighbourhood policing team and Operational Galaxy following a reported theft.

Upon entering the property and carrying out a search two Ifor Williams Trailers were discovered alongside a number of stolen Stihl chainsaws and cutters.

Further searches uncovered a quantity of what is believed to be Class B drugs and a number of weapons including bb guns, crossbows and knives.

Two men were arrested on suspicion of possession of drugs and offensive weapons and have been released under investigation whilst officers continue with enquiries.

Rural Task Force Officer Kevin Jones said: “Rural crime continue to remain a priority for us as we work alongside partnering agencies and the farming community to proactively disrupt criminals targeting our communities.

“We will take action on every occasion and will look at utilising all the available legislation to prevent, deter and prosecute those who decide to engage in criminality around our countryside.

“Wherever we have the evidence we will prosecute offenders and we welcome the help of our rural communities in letting us know of incidents in their area. If people see anything suspicious, they should always call 999 for suspected crimes in progress or 101 for non-emergency incidents.”
