Norfolk Constabulary disrupted another two unlicensed music events at the weekend.
More than 100 people attended the two seperate incidents which followed a similar rave the previous weekend.
The larger of the two events was held in Thetford Forest near Shadwell at about 2.30am Sunday morning were sixty people gathered.
Police seized various items of sound equipment including speakers, a generator and mixing desk.
Three people were arrested on suspicion of causing a public nuisance.
A little earlier police had received details of people gathered in the Hedneham area near Bungay.
The event was disrupted and crowds were dispersed.
Superintendent Dave Marshall said: "The action taken by us overnight to prevent and disrupt these events is once again a demonstration of our zero-tolerance approach to unlicensed music events - they are potentially dangerous and cause unnecessary damage as well as disruptive to the local community.
"Indeed, we received complaints to the Thetford incident from people who were staying at a nearby campsite.
"We took similar action at an event near Mundford last weekend and last night's action is a continuation of that approach."
