Two men, aged 32 and 25, were arrested on suspicion of theft.

Sergeant Paul Peatfield, of the Ashfield Operation Reacher team, said: “We have been watching this property for some time and took decisive action yesterday.

“With two suspects in custody and a significant amount of class A drugs taken off the streets we were happy enough with our day’s work, but the unexpected two for one offer we happened across in the same street was really an added bonus.

“Drug related offences are a blight on our community and also on other vulnerable people who commit offences to fund their drug use.

“We won’t tolerate the trade in illegal drugs and will continue our work ti disrupt the local supply.”
