A man, aged 20, and a woman, aged 49, were arrested for possession with intent to supply Class A and Class B drugs.

Sergeant Simon Whitehouse said: “This is a prime example of why early morning warrants are so important. We managed to catch these people unaware and seize a number of drugs and cash from the property.

“We even found a plastic bag inside the toilet bowl, which we suspect they did not want us to find.

“Drug dealing causes misery to so many people’s lives and that is why we will continue to target those who peddle these drugs in our county.

“If you suspect there is drug dealing happening on your street then please contact the police on 101. “
