Drugs and cash have been seized following a police raid on a Burnley house.

Officers carried out a drugs raid at the house Meadow Close, Reedley, on Wednesday.

Usman Ajaz, of Meadow Close, has since been charged with possession of class A drugs with intent to supply and also on suspicion of money laundering.

Ajaz has been remanded into custody until December 4th, when he will appear before Burnley Crown Court.

A 16 year old and a 21 year old man, who were also arrested, have now been placed on police bail.

PC Martin Vernon said: “Drugs blight our communities and make our neighbourhoods feel less safe. Most burglaries, car crime and robberies are carried out to fund a drug habit.

“We are committed to taking drug dealers off our streets. Information we’ve received from the public is vital when it comes to carrying out our operations successfully.

“We need the public to keep giving us information about people who you suspect are dealing drugs. If you know something, do something.

“We know that the action we are taking is improving the quality of people’s lives and is a good example of what the police and community can achieve by working together.”
