"DST (District Support Team) didn't even need to put this door up the hall way! They just walked in! Where's the fun in that?!"

One individual was arrested during the raid for possession of class B drugs with an intent to supply.

Officers have appealed to any members of the public who suspect there may be someone dealing in their area, or know "where they're hiding it and how they're selling it" to get in touch.
