Senior investigation officer Steve Jones, of our Serious and Organised Crime Unit, said: “We have carried out these warrants as part of our Stronghold campaign which aims to work in partnership to tackle serious and organised crime.
“This was an intelligence led investigation and we have arrested a number of people and our investigation is ongoing.”
“Information is vital to tackling serious and organised crime and we would encourage people in our communities to continue reporting drug dealers operating where they live.
“With this we can build up an intelligence picture in order to then execute warrants and make arrests.
“This operation had not only brought arrests but taken two dangerous firearms off the streets as well as drugs.”
