This Latest Activity Falls under West Yorkshire Police’s Viper Initiative
Bradford Police have today released photos of ten men they would like to speak to in connection with a major operation tackling drug dealing in the city.
They are being sought as part of Operation Stalebank, which has so far put 80 dealers behind bars for a total of 260 years.
Officers are now appealing to the public to come forward with any information to identify these men and progress the investigation.
This latest activity falls under West Yorkshire Police’s Viper initiative, which is transferring the fear of crime onto criminals themselves, and achieving significant crime reductions across the county.
Detective Inspector Ian Bryar, who is leading the investigation, said: “Stalebank has made a big impact on the supply and distribution of heroin and cocaine in Bradford District, and more people are due in court later this month on charges of drug dealing.
“Information from the public has been key in helping us and our partners to run successful arrest operations and bring these people to justice.
“Our communities have made it clear to us that they do not want these negative role models in their community and that is why we are again appealing to the public to identify these men.”
Anyone with information on any of the above suspects is asked to contact DC David Jackson at Bradford District Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
