Four men have been charged after we found various weapons, drugs and property in Rugeley last week.
Matthew Gilbert, 44, from Rugeley, has been charged with possession with intent to supply heroin, cocaine and cannabis.
Lee Mosey, 45, from Rugeley, has been charged with possession of a weapon for the discharge of a noxious liquid or gas and possession with intent to supply cannabis.
Garry Richards, 32, from Rugeley, has been charged with possession with intent to supply MDMA and cannabis.
Samuel Walker, 33, from Walsall, was charged with being concerned in the supply of class B drugs, possession with intent to supply MDMA, cannabis, possession of an offensive weapon in a private place and possessing criminal property.
All four men have been remanded in custody ahead of an appearance at Stafford Crown Court on 27 October.
We searched six separate addresses and two vehicles in the Rugeley area last Thursday (28 September). We found more than £42,000-worth of drugs, around £40,000-worth of high value goods and a number of weapons.
We launched Operation Target earlier this year and have been working alongside neighbouring forces in the region to tackle serious and organised crime locally.
