Once inside they found a significant quantity of suspected Class A drugs, cash, mobile phones and drug-related paraphernalia including weighing scales.

A meat cleaver and a knife were also taken from the address.

Five men, aged 45, 21, 20, 19 and 18, and a 47-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of possessing Class A drugs with intent to supply and were later released under investigation.

Inspector Kylie Davies, district commander for Mansfield, said:

“We understand the negative impact drug-related crime has on our communities and also the toll it takes on vulnerable people.

“That’s why we work hard to gather the necessary intelligence to disrupt the local supply and bring suspects into custody.

“As our investigation into this incident continues, I’d like to remind local residents of the importance of sharing information and concerns with us at the earliest possibility so we can take this kind of action and remove drugs from our communities.”
