Police have made two arrests after three drug warrants were executed in the west of the county last week.
On February 18 officers conducted a warrant at a property on Bell Lane, in Barton Mills. A quantity of cannabis was seized which has resulted in a 35-year-old male receiving a caution.
On February 19 officers conducted a warrant at a property on Betony Walk, in Haverhill. Two males, in their 40s, were located in the property, and following an extensive search no drugs were located.
Elsewhere, on February 21 officers conducted a warrant at Maundy Close, in Bury St Edmunds, where they seized a large quantity of cash, cannabis and unopened perfume and aftershave bottles which are believed to be stolen.
A 29-year-old female from Bury was arrested on suspicion being concerned in supplying controlled drug, suspicion of money laundering and suspicion of handling stolen goods. While a 29-year-old male was also arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply cannabis, suspicion of money laundering and suspicion of handling stolen goods. Both suspects were taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning and subsequently released under investigation pending further enquiries.
PC Christien Williams, from Mildenhall police, said: “This operation targeted those who are involved in drug-related activity in the west of the county and beyond. This was an intelligence-led operation with a number of officers working together in order to disrupt and pursue criminals, to protect our communities from harm.
