“I’m also really grateful to members of the public for their help and support and for getting in touch with us to share information.

“Anyone who believes criminal activity is taking place in their area should please get in touch with police and report it – your information can sometimes be the final piece of evidence we need to carry out proactive steps as we did with this week’s raid.
