Investigation Into Nicholas and Joan Taylor Largest Of Its Type In Northants Police History
Dawn Drugs Raids
More than 150 officers have been involved in drugs raids at 16 homes across Northamptonshire this morning.
10 people have been arrested as part of a long-term investigation into the large scale supply of class A drugs.
As part of the operation they teamed up with officers in Cambridgeshire and Hampshire, with 19 arrests made in Cambridgeshire and nine in Hampshire.
Warrants were carried out at properties in Northampton, Earls Bartom, Burton Latimer, Corby, Wilby, Sutton, Waterbeach, St Ives, Ely, Burwell, Needingworth, Cottenham, Fulbourn, Huntingdon, Milton and Cambridge.
Drugs, a firearm and three vehicles were seized.
Detective Inspector Mark Brayfield, of the East Midlands Special Operations Unit for Serious Organised Crime, said: 'These raids are the culmination of a long-term drugs conspiracy investigation by Northamptonshire Police, in conjunction with regional colleagues in Cambridgeshire and Hampshire, to stop class A drugs being sold in our counties.
'We believe there are organised crime groups responsible for much of the supply of drugs in the county and we are determined to continue our efforts to root them out and cut off the wider criminality and anti-social behaviour associated with supplying drugs.'
