Inspector Jon Hewitt, district commander for Ashfield, said: “Tackling drug-related crime is a local priority and we are always on the lookout for suspected dealers.

“All together this was a really good day’s work by the team, who demonstrated some excellent police work.

“I hope these arrests will serve as a warning to others that there is never a safe time to be in possession of illegal drugs.”
