Operation Core is still delivering results.

Under the lead of Inspector Chris Stewart, local officers with support from the divisional Pro-active team and Operational Support Unit carried out a week of action last week targeting drug suppliers. Eleven warrants were executed, ten people arrested and 14 charges of production or supply of controlled drugs preferred.

With £56,800 worth of cannabis and £2800 worth of cocaine recovered as well as £3650 cash also seized, this was an excellent result.
