On Tuesday, April 20, officers descended on a house in Roxburgh Close, Arnold, where class B drugs – including mamba and cannabis – was discovered.

A 19-year-old man was voluntarily interviewed on suspicion of possession with intent to supply mamba and possession of cannabis, and investigations are continuing.

The final raid took place on Friday, April 23, in Pearson Street, where a small amount of cannabis plants were found.

Neighbourhood Policing Inspector Chris Pearson said: “We’re continuing our relentless work to tackle drug supply as a priority after listening to our communities who have told us what issues are most concerning to them.

“By targeting those believed to be involved in drug crime we not only disrupt the criminal network but we prevent other serious criminality from occurring.
