Bury woman arrested after drugs and cash found in car

A Bury woman has been arrested after drugs and cash were found in her car in Blackpool.

A 60-year-old woman has been arrested after cocaine, a shoe box full of cannabis (both pictured) and a large quantity of cash were found in a car in Blackpool.

Lancashire police stopped the vehicle on Yeadon Way at around 12.30pm yesterday (Tuesday, October 26th).

The woman, from Bury, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A and B drugs and money laundering.

She was arrested as part of ongoing Operation Vanquish – a fortnight of surge activity to clamp down on those driving illegally or using the road network for criminality.

Sgt Dave Benson, of the Lancashire Police TacOps team, said: “We are just over halfway through another fortnight of Operation Vanquish action, and are continuing to target those who think they don’t need to follow the law, or think it’s acceptable to use the road network for criminality.

“Our message is simple: if this is you, we will catch up with you.”

The arrested woman remains in police custody.
