Detective Chief Inspector Steve Mattin from the Serious and Organised Crime Directorate who has been overseeing the operation said: “Targeted operations such as these often take weeks of organisation, to ensure we have the relevant information and intelligence required to carry out warrants and make arrests.
“Our aim is to disrupt organised crime groups who are working in the county, dealing in the supply of class A drugs (cocaine and heroin) and the arrests and charges this week sends out a strong message that such criminal activity will not be tolerated here in Suffolk.”
