Chief Inspector Rick Gooch, who is the lead on community policing in the area, said: “Officers from our Safer Neighbourhood policing teams carried out these warrants based on information from the local community and we hope that this shows that we take reports of illegal drug activity very seriously.

“Drugs misuse can have a negative impact on local neighbourhoods and I’d urge anyone with information about the supply of drugs to let the police know.”

Anyone with information about the misuse of drugs or any other crime can call Derbyshire police on 101, the non emergency number, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
