A further eight people have been arrested as part of an operation to target the supply of drugs in Tamworth.
This morning (Friday 24 June) officers from Staffordshire Police, supported by colleagues from the National Crime Agency (NCA), made arrests and carried out searches at various addresses in Tamworth.
They seized around £8,000 in cash and approximately £10,000 worth of suspected cannabis vegetation.
Eight men, all from Tamworth, and aged between 26 – 42, have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class B drugs.
They remain in custody at this time.
Detective Inspector Tim Boulton, from the force’s Major and Organised Crime Unit, said: “We continue to target those concerned in the sale and supply of drugs across Staffordshire.
“I hope these arrests, along with the eleven yesterday, shows local residents that we are committed in our fight against organised crime.
“Intelligence from the community is also really important to us. Your information can help us to build up a picture of what is happening in your area so we can take the appropriate action.”
Anyone with any information or concerns around drug activity can contact the police, by calling 101 or online at: Report | Staffordshire Police
You can also anonymously contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
