Three men have been arrested after a number of weapons and drugs were seized during a warrant in Luton.

The Eastern Region Special Operations Unit (ERSOU), in conjunction with the National Crime Agency, executed the warrant at Thrales Close on Tuesday (4 December). A quantity of what are believed to be Class A and B drugs were seized, along with a converted handgun and four stun gun devices. A number of vehicles were also recovered from outside the property, including one that is believed to have been stolen. Detective Sergeant James Day, from ERSOU, said: “We’re committed to tackling those causing serious harm to communities across the eastern region. As a result of this operation, potentially dangerous weapons, along with illegal drugs, have been taken off the streets.” If you’re concerned about criminality in your area please contact your local force on 101. The men have been released under investigation pending further enquiries.
