Main article content
Two brothers have been charged with drug offences as a result of a complex investigation led by officers from our Op Raptor team.
Officers executed a warrant at an address in Foxglove Way, Chelmsford, shortly before midday on Tuesday 14 November.
As a result of that action, two men were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.
During a search of the address, a large quantity of cash was seized as well as a number of items of significance to the investigation.
Florjan and Kreshnik Huta, aged 20 and 29, of Foxglove Way, Chelmsford, have been charged with being concerned in the supply of cocaine.
Both men are due to appear at Southend Magistrates’ Court today, Wednesday 15 November.
'A significant step'
Detective Inspector Mark Jones, of our Op Raptor North team, said:
“This is a significant step forward in this investigation. “Our investigations often span across Essex and into London and we have a strong relationship with the Metropolitan Police in order to ensure intelligence is passed between forces, as is shown in this case.”
Inspector Sam Girdlestone, of the Chelmsford Community Policing Team, added:
“A key priority for us is keeping our communities safe from the impact and effects of illicit drugs and we work with teams which are in place across the force to best do that.”
