The investigations prior to the arrests were led by the Serious Crime Disruption Team. Their core aim is to disrupt serious and organised gangs whose criminal activity focusses on issues such as drug supply and harmful personal acquisitive crime such as robbery/burglary. The team develop the relevant information and intelligence, conduct enforcement activity and then provide an officer who will build the case and see the investigation through to trial.

The arrests came under the umbrella of Operation Orochi – an operation set up by Suffolk Constabulary with the Metropolitan Police to tackle County Lines drug dealing that operates between London and Suffolk.
