Two charged after heroin and amphetamines find

Two men have appeared in court after millions of pounds of drugs were seized by detectives.

Officers from the North East Regional Organised Crime Unit (ROCU) recovered heroin and amphetamines with a street value of at least £6m after searching a premises in Topcliffe, North Yorkshire.

Police said the haul was "significant".

Aaron Nesbitt, 26, from Billingham, and Kirk Anderson, 35, from Stockton, were remanded in custody at Teesside Magistrates' Court earlier.

The pair were both charged with possession with intent to supply class A and B drugs and conspiracy to supply class A and B drugs after police executed a search warrant on Wednesday.

They will appear at Teesside Crown Court on 17 January.

Det Supt Tim Walker, from the ROCU said: "This seizure has stopped a significant amount of controlled drugs from potentially causing harm in our communities and those farther afield.

"We have many more inquiries to make in this large-scale investigation."
