Det Insp Andy Smith, who led the operation, said: “A significant amount of cash and class A and B drugs have been seized. The message I want to send out to those concerned in the supply and misuse of drugs is clear - if you continue to use and supply drugs you can expect to be caught and brought to justice.
“I would also wish to reassure our communities that Suffolk Police will not tolerate this sort of criminality, and to appeal to them for information in respect of known or suspected drug dealers.”
