HUMBERSIDE Police made their hundredth cash seizure of the year, taking their overall total for 2018 to £645,443.

The largest single haul by the force's asset recovery investigation unit was £102,500 as part of a drugs investigation.

Senior Financial Investigator Lorraine Baines said: "I’m extremely pleased with the results my team is getting. It’s the first time we’ve had a hundred cash seizures in a year and there will be plenty more to come.

"Most of the money we are seizing or freezing come from drugs crime. The main focus of those individuals involved in drugs is to make a profit. We’re making sure that profit doesn’t work its way back into their criminal worlds."
