Weapons seized during raid in Hanley

An imitation handgun and two daggers have been seized during a raid in Hanley.

Officers found the weapons, as well as a small quantity of cannabis, at a property in Lowther Street this morning.

The serrated daggers with 4" blades would be illegal if carried outside.

A 29-year-old woman living at the address was also issued a community resolution after being found in possession of cannabis.

The raid was part of 50 days of action being carried out by Staffordshire Police.

Chief Inspector Neil Hulme, commander of the Stoke Central local policing team, said: "Following some good work by my officers, we have taken three dangerous weapons off the street and shut down another known drug location.

"50-50 continues to disrupt criminals in Staffordshire and there's much more to come."
