Three men have been charged with serious drugs offences after large sums of money and cannabis was seized in Norwich on Wednesday.
Officers recovered two kilos of heroin with an estimated street value of up to £200,000 from a van in the Swansea Road area whilst two large bundles of cash, estimated to contain between £20,000 and £40,000, was seized from a house in Avenue Road.
Tony Rimmer, aged 28 from Liverpool and Carl Fairfield, aged 37 from Liverpool, were both travelling to Norwich when they were stopped driving a white Van. Rocky Gamble, aged 30 from Norwich, was later arrested for after a warrant was also issued at his address in Avenue Road where two large bundles of cash, estimated to be between £20,000 and £40,000, were seized. All three men have been charged with conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.
They have been remanded in custody and will appear at Norwich Magistrates Court tomorrow morning on Friday.
In a third incident, a utility worked alerted police to a property in Calthorpe Road, Norwich. He had been responding to a call for service in the area and when he called at the address, an occupant answered the door and fled. When officers arrived they found a sophisticated cannabis production operation and seized 275 cannabis plants, along with equipment associated with drugs cultivation.
