Sgt Matt Goodenough said: “This has stopped a significant amount of illegal drugs getting to our streets.

“I would encourage those who have suspicions of illegal activity to report them to us, no matter how insignificant it may seem. People coming and going around the clock and blacked out windows are just a couple of things to look out for.”
