“The five individuals arrested are currently assisting with our enquiries and our investigation remains ongoing.

“NWP continues to work hard to keep drugs off our streets and reduce crime.

"By working closely with other forces and partner agencies, we can tackle drug-related issues at the earliest opportunity.

“We urge anyone with concerns about drugs to please report these matters to us.”
