"Drugs and the criminality often associated with them devastates lives and causes fear among local communities," said PC Callum Ellis, who coordinated the operation.

"This operation was carried out following intelligence, and I hope it reassures people that we are listening to concerns and will do whatever we can to take action against anyone suspected of being involved in crime."
