Drugs and cash have been seized from a home after a police raid.

Seven people were arrested after officers issued warrants in Great Yarmouth on Wednesday morning.

Officers from Norfolk Police’s Tactical Unit and the Great Yarmouth and Breckland Safer Neighbourhood Action Teams targeted homes in Priory Plain, York Road, Orford Close, Wellesley Road and Britannia Road and seized a quantity of Class A drugs and cash.

Four people from Great Yarmouth, one man and three women, all in their 30s have been arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.

Three men from London, aged 17, 18 and 35, were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.

All seven remained in police custody and officers were due to question them later on Wednesday.

The operation is part of a Norfolk drugs clamp down.

Detective Sergeant Paul Morton said: “Today’s action demonstrates our commitment to tackling the supply of Class A drugs in Great Yarmouth under Operation Gravity, Norfolk Constabulary’s campaign to disrupt drug related crime in the county.

“I hope today’s arrests reassure the local community that we will continue to listen to their concerns and work with our partner agencies to identify those vulnerable members of the community who are at risk of becoming involved in this kind of crime.”

If you have concerns about drug related crime in your community please contact Norfolk Police on 101 or alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
