Police have seized a quantity of what is suspected to be class A drugs, and approximately £150,000 in cash while executing warrants on two addresses on Sharrow Lane.
Yesterday officers searched two properties and several vehicles linked to the addresses.
Sergeant Ross Greenwood, the officer in charge of the case, said: “We’re pleased to have seized quantities of drugs and cash as a result of this warrant. We want to be clear, to our communities and to those involved in organised crime, that our efforts are going to be relentless in disrupting criminal activity.”
Five people were detained; three men in their 20s were arrested on suspicion of possessing class A drugs and two men, aged 29 and 34, were arrested on suspicion of money laundering.
Anyone with concerns of information about the suspected supply or possession of drugs should call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
