Two further arrests have been made following the discovery of class A and class B drugs, cash and weapons in Hednesford earlier this month.
Yesterday (Monday 30 October), a 46-year-old man, from Cannock, was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of a class A drug and being in possession of an offensive weapon in a private place.
Another man, aged 25, and from Wolverhampton, was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a class A drug. He was also arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm with intent. This relates to an incident on Market Street, Hednesford, on Sunday 8 October.
Both men have been released under investigation.
It comes after we searched a man inside a van on Market Street, Hednesford, on Friday 13 October. We found class A and class B drugs alongside two mobile phones.
Officers then searched an address, finding more drugs and a quantity of cash. A further address was searched where we discovered more drugs and weapons.
We are continuing to work with our neighbouring forces to tackle serious and organised crime as part of our Operation Target commitment.
